Kansas Banks Warn of Credit Card Scam



ATCHISON, Kan. - Bank officials and police in northeast Kansas are cautioning citizens about what appears to be a credit card scam. Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson tells radio station KAIR (http://bit.ly/1pJUzPB ) the scam has hit numerous times recently in that city and in neighboring Brown County.
 
Authorities say bank customers receive a recorded phone call say their credit card has been deactivated. The recording tells customers they can reactivate the card by providing the 16-digit card number, the PIN number and, in some cases, their Social Security number. Wilson says that such scams can be very hard to investigate. He says the calls usually originate outside the area, possibly from a foreign country. The chief advises hanging up immediately on any such call.
