The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office has issued a warning about a new “robo-call” scam that attempts to get consumers to provide confidential banking information.
The “robo-calls”, which are so-named because they use recorded messages, claim to be from major banks. The messages state there is a problem with the banking network and ask for verification of banking account information, including credit and debit card numbers, along with personal identification numbers.
“Consumers need to be extremely wary of telephone calls requesting sensitive information about banking or credit cards,” District Attorney Steve Cooley said.
He urged consumers to contact their local police stations. For the Los Angeles Police Department’s Wilshire Division, call (213)473-0476; for the LAPD’s Hollywood Division, call (213)972-2971; or the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station, call (310)855-8850.
