Representatives claiming to be from credit card companies may be trying to obtain information from you that could allow them to charge your credit cards, all while claiming they are trying to help you prevent credit card fraud.
Attorney General Steve Six said today his office has been alerted to a scam that has already been reported in five counties in Kansas.
These scam artists will often offer assurances that they are calling from a credit card company, such as giving you a name and some sort of ID number.
Remember that your credit card company will never need to call you for your card number. They already have that information.
