Buffalo Police Warn Citizens Of Phone Scam

Buffalo Police Warn Citizens Of Phone Scam

Buffalo Police Chief Jason Carder has issued a warning for citizens to be aware of a new phone scam that has recently started in the area.

He said Wyoming citizens including some locally, are being subjected to robocalls asking for debit card and credit card information.
According to a press release, the Wyoming Attorney General's Office has recently seen a sharp rise in consumer complaints regarding this type of scam, and is investigating the calls.

Carder tells us more about the scam.

The Attorney General's Office suggests if a citizen receives a call like this that they do not give out any personal information and hang up. Citizens that have any concerns about their debit or credit card, can contact the financial institution that issued the card.

People can report robocall debit card incidents to the Attorney General's office at 777-5833 or directly to the Federal Trade Commission at FTC.gov or 877-382-4357.

If you believe you are the victim of this scam, please contact your financial institution immediately.
