The Wyoming Attorney General is warning that scammers are directing automated telephone calls to citizens seeking information about credit cards and debit cards.
The Attorney General's Office reports it has seen a sharp rise in consumer complaints regarding this type of scam. Investigators are looking into the calls.
In the scam, a voice recording tells the person receiving the call that there's been a problem with their card. The recording then asks the person enter their card number and other information.
The Attorney General's Office warns people not to give out any personal information over the phone. Anyone with concerns about their debit or credit card should contact the financial institution that issued the card.
