The St. Joseph County Sheriff’s Department’s Criminal Investigation Division received a complaint in regards to a phone scam.
The complainant advised they received a call indicating their debit card had been temporarily locked. The complainant was instructed to press a combination of numbers that would transfer them to a call center.
Sheriff’s officials are suggesting anyone who receives a similar call to not press any numbers, and instead hang up the phone. The complainant’s bank was notified and confirmed this was a scam.
