Credit card scam discovered in Bloomington
The scam involves individuals calling residents, claiming to represent cable and satellite companies, according to a press release issued by the State Police.
They proceed to offer service upgrades for the subscriber for as little as $1 provided the individual issues his or her credit card number, according to the release.
The State Police would like to remind Bloomington residents of the following:
- Never give out your social security number or birth date.
- Never give out credit, debit, checking, savings or investment information.
- Never agree to send money.
- Attempt to gather information from the caller, and alert law enforcement or the Indiana Attorney General’s Office at 800-382-5516 or in.gov/attorneygeneral/.-- Michael Majchrowicz
