Police are reminding residents never to give out banking or credit card info over the phone
If someone is asking for your credit card over the phone, don’t give it out.
This is the message police want to get across as another phone scam is reportedly making the rounds in Haliburton. Reports to the MyHaliburtonNow Newsroom say a scammer has been calling around pretending to be a banking representative. OPP Constable Mo Tilson says bank officials will never ask for your personal information if they call.
If you believe you’ve given out credit or banking information to a scammer, Tilson says you need to get in touch with your financial institution right away. She says if you see any money missing from your accounts, you need to call the OPP.
