Here is some helpful information regarding a recent telephone scam:
The scam begins with an unsolicited phone call from a company identifying itself as “Rewards Today” or “Reward Redemption”. They tell the victim that they are eligible to receive a $100 gift card from a well known retail store. If they act today, they can also receive an additional $25 gift card. The criminal then asks the victim for their credit card or debit card number in order to pay a nominal processing/shipping fee. Sometimes, they ask for additional information, such as birth date and social security number. This information will be used to commit fraud and identity theft.
Remember, we will never call a customer and ask them to provide their debit card or credit card number to us. If you receive a suspicious phone call like this, the best choice is to hang up.
