Consumer Alert! New Credit Card Scam: Stealing Security Codes
This is a new credit card scam everyone needs to be watching out for. If you get a call from someone claiming to be from your bank, here’s what to do: If a caller claims to be from your card issuer’s fraud-prevention department, ask for the caller’s name and/or employee ID, hang up, then call the 800-number on the back of your card and ask to speak to the fraud-prevention department or that particular employee. If the call was not from the card issuer, explain that your account number likely has been stolen. The issuer will give you a new card with a new number.
