The Logan County Sheriff’s Office received several calls Thursday from county residents who had been targets of a credit card scam.
The residents said they had received automated phone calls that informed them their credit cards had been deactivated or put on hold. Then they were instructed to enter additional information about their credit cards.
Victims reported that the call came from an unavailable number or a number with no caller ID, and a number of the individuals received the calls on their cellular phones.
Deputies urge residents to never give out personal information to a caller that seems suspicious or is unfamiliar to them.
Individuals who might have given out personal information are encouraged to check their credit card statements and also to contact their credit card companies.
