Police Warn Of Phony Automated Phone Call
April 19, 2009, 9:31 PM
Sioux Falls police are warning of a phony automated phone call.
Multiple reports say a call from a 514 number tells people their ATM card has been cancelled and that they need to push "1" to reinstate their card. When the number is pushed the call suddenly ends.
Police warn people not to follow the call's instruction and say they don't know what information is gained from this, if any.
Authorities remind people to never give out any personal information over the phone such as account or PIN numbers to an incoming call.
KELOLAND News has received several tip calls indicating that people are recieving phony calls from numbers that are not from the 514 area code.
