This current scam involves debit cards, credit cards and pre-paid cards. PLEASE BE AWARE! The electronic voice calls a cell number and tells you that your card has been cancelled and to reactivate your card press 1. When you select the option to reinstate your card, the next automated voice tells you to, “Now enter your card number” and at that point the criminals behind this scam have your card information. Please understand that the scammers have obtained cell numbers only from some source that sells cell numbers and are now trying to gain access to your card number.
Please remember, here at Chocolate Bayou we will never ask for your card information – because we already have that information!
As always, give us a call at (281) 331-2253 should you have questions.
