Suspicious Circumstances-Possible Scam Artists

Tuesday, January 3, 2006 11:00 AM

For Immediate Release:

Sutter County Sheriff’s Deputies have received several complaints from members of the East Indian Community, informing the Department of attempts to obtain personnel banking and identification information over the telephone. The victims received telephone calls in at least two instances where the caller identified himself as being from the “Department of Homeland Security”. The caller would then engage the victim in a conversation over the use of the victim’s credit card to purchase expensive airline tickets. The caller would then attempt to get personal identification information and credit card information. The victim was then asked to telephone a number the caller provided for “Trans Union”, to provide personal information to confirm the credit card account. The callers apparently, specifically targeted several members of the East Indian community in this latest scam attempt.

All county residents should be warned not to provide personal or banking information over the telephone as it could subject them to financial losses if the information is used for criminal gain. Legitimate agencies and investigators will not require information such as specific banking information over the telephone.
