Ark. attorney general warns of phone scams

July 25, 2013

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel is warning about two phone scams going on in the state.

McDaniel says his office has received a number of reports that people claiming to be with credit card companies or the government are trying to obtain credit card or bank numbers.

McDaniel says one scam involves a person alleging to be with a credit card company and saying the would-be victim's credit cards are locked and that their credit numbers are needed to unlock the cards. He says credit card companies would already know the customers' card number.

McDaniel says the second involves someone posing as a government employee and offering grants to people with good credit and asking for checking, savings or debit card numbers. He says there is no such grant program.
