Dozens called in Indiana debit card scam

– Officials say calls to dozens of Indiana residents about suspended debit cards could be a scam.

WISH-TV reports that at least 66 people have called the Consumer Protection Division of the Attorney General’s office with complaints.

Residents say they’ve received calls from an automated voice message saying their debit card has been suspended.

The message then asks for users’ debit card numbers, their security codes and the last digits of their social security number.

A spokeswoman for the Consumer Protection Division says people should hang up and call their banks if they receive similar calls. The calls likely are difficult to trace, making it difficult to get any lost money back.

They warn most robo-calls are illegal in Indiana, and requests for personal information likely are bogus.
