Card Services Scams

March 7, 2012

This scam usually begins with an automated phone call. A message will state that the call is coming from a company with a name like “card services”, “card holder services” or “credit card services.” You'll be told that you can lower your interest rate. The caller then requests your credit card number, social security number or other personal information. Never give out your credit card, personal or bank account information based on an automated phone call. If you do, you're opening yourself up to become a victim of identity theft.
