Credit card scam, be aware

LITTLE FALLS — The Morrison County Sheriff’s Office is warning county citizens of a recent credit card scam.

Several county residents have recently been contacted by phone and have received a recorded message stating that their credit card has been deactivated. The message then asks the person to go through several prompts and reenter their credit card information in order to reactivate the card. It has been confirmed that these types of calls are a scam.

Morrison County Sheriff Michel Wetzel reminds residents not to provide credit card or direct personal information after being contacted either by phone, mail or e-mail. In the event you suspect or are notified of a problem with your credit card, you should contact your credit card company yourself. Anytime you do not initiate the contact you risk being the victim of a scam.
