St. Mary Parish Sheriff David A. Naquin announced today that several people in the area have gotten phone calls either by cell or regular phones informing them of a problem with their credit or debit cards. The caller then tries to obtain card numbers and other identifying information from the card. Some of these recent callers then try to obtain funds from the debit or credit cards after being given the information from the owner. Sheriff Naquin want to warn everyone that you should not give out any personal information to people whom you do not know, and to contact your local police office should anyone try to get this information. If a call is made to you we area asking the public to try to get the caller ID information and relay this to law enforcement. Recently when someone attempted to get information from the caller, they hang up. This is another sign this was a bogus or suspicious call.
