Police warn of latest scam callsMarch 10, 2014
From local sources
The Dubois County Sheriff’s Department and the Jasper Police Department are alerting the public about a new round of scam calls that proliferated during the weekend.
Intended victims have received automated calls from the 702 area code out of Nevada purporting to be from Hoosier Hills Credit Union. The calls have gone out to both cells phones and land lines at all hours of the day and night.
Upon answering, intended victims are advised their account with Hoosier Hills has been compromised, according to Jasper police. They are told to follow the prompts to get their account reinstated.
Police said the prompts in this case would include giving out crucial information such as account numbers and PIN numbers.
When it comes to receiving unsolicited, suspect calls, authorities say hanging up is the safe course of action. As long as you do not give out information, Jasper police said, it is not necessary to contact law enforcement.
Anyone who did give out pertinent information should contact police.
