Emporium State Police Warn Of Potential Credit Card Scam

 

Royal Bank received this communication with the latest scam. This is happening in the Midwest right now and moving across the country.

 

The scam is somewhat different, since the scammers provide YOU with all the information, except the piece they need.

 

The information is worth reading. By understanding how the VISA & MasterCard telephone Credit card works, you'll be better prepared to protect yourself.

 

Here is how it works:

 

You receive a call from a person claiming to be employed either at Visa or MasterCard. The caller claims to be calling from the Security and Fraud Department and tells you that your card has been flagged for an unusual purchase pattern. The caller then cites a particular purchase (typically under $500) and asks if you really purchased the questionable item. When you respond, "No", the caller then promises to credit your account with the amount and begin a fraud investigation. The caller typically asks certain identity question, such as address and more importantly, your credit card security number (the 3 or 4 digits in the back of the card).

 

The caller succeeds in obtaining the security information on your account and then uses that information to make a purchase. Unless you know this is a scam, when you get your credit card statement and see the fraudulent charge, you assume that the investigation is under way and is being taken care of. Meanwhile, this is all a scam. The purpose of the scam is to get that 3-4 digit security number.

 

How Can You Protect Yourself?

 

With this particular scam, don't give out any information over the phone unless you call the number provided in the back of your card. If you do receive a phone call reporting a fraudulent charge, hang up and call the number provided on your card.

 

If you have already fallen victim to this or a similar scam, contact your credit card company. Visa and MasterCard have also been encouraging defrauded consumers to file a police report.
