North Little Rock police warn of phishing scam
Currently Central Arkansas is experiencing a phishing scam in which the suspects are contacting victims with Robo-calls and text messages. The suspects are advising victims their debit or credit cards have been canceled by mistake or some version of this. The area banks are aware of this scam and are attempting to notify their customers.
Sgt. Brian Dedrick, public information officer for the North Little Rock Police Department, said people need to be aware this is a dialing scam going on in this market with several financial institutions where an automated telephone service is calling people at random with the following message:"Your debit card has been deactivated. To Reactivate, press 1……"
Dedrick said, "Please remember that Financial Institutions will never call customers and ask for debit card information. If you receive a call from a customer, please let them know they should not give out their debit card number or any financial information. This automated call is originating out of Florida." Anyone having concerns should contact the city police department, according to Dedrick.
