Please read...Debit Card Scam!

Just got a phone call from 714-717-9689 telling me my Comerica Visa debit card had been put on hold. If I wished to reactivate press 1. If I wanted to talk with someone press 2. I pressed 2 and got the same message. I hung up and called my bank and they said they have gotten several calls with in the last hour. She checked and made sure everything was okay and that it wasn't them. She also said that it prompts to have you put your number and pin number in.

So tell your kids and whoever to not give out any info if they recieve this type of call and then check with your bank to make sure everything is okay.

Thanks for the heads up.

I'll add that I got a suspicious email from "Amazon.com" yesterday. It said my recent order was cancelled and gave me a link to click on, which I didn't, since I knew I haven't ordered anything from Amazon since December. I asked my husband if he ordered anything he said no so I forwarded the email to Amazon. I'm sure it was a phishing email but still wanted to give everyone a heads up.

Some thieves will go to any lengths to scam people. The sad part is people fall for it.  Common sense isn't common anymore.  They prey on young adults & elderly and use a scare tactic.  So sad...and how can these crooks live with themselves, but they do.
