AROUND MISSISSIPPI — A debit card scam that began late last month has widened, according to Public Service Commissioner Brandon Presley.
Presley sent a release last week warning of a series of scam calls claiming to be BancorpSouth and Renasant Bank, asking customers to either validate or re-instate their debit cards.
Yesterday, Presley announced the scam now also includes Community Bank.
“These calls came from a variety of numbers including ‘private’ numbers and asked consumers to give information including their debit card expiration dates and other confidential information in order to re-instate or validate your debit card,” Presley said. “Consumers who gave out any of their information should immediately contact their bank.”
Presley said that his office plans to share all complaints and information with the Federal Trade Commission and Attorney General Jim Hood’s office.
