LINCOLN — Attorney General Jon Bruning issued a consumer alert Friday to be wary of telephone calls that instruct people to reactivate a suspended or compromised debit card.
The Attorney General’s Office received seven reports of the scam on Friday. The calls came from this phone number: (206) 958-8754.
Calls from the number instruct receivers to provide their debit card number for reactivation.
Once a scammer has access to a consumer’s account information, it can be used to make fraudulent purchases or to withdraw money from the account.
Nebraskans who have responded to the scam are encouraged to contact debit card issuers immediately. In addition, notification should be filed with the three major credit bureaus — TransUnion, Experian and Equifax.
For more information or to file a complaint, contact the Attorney General’s Office Consumer Protection Division at ago.ne.gov or 800-727-6432.
