POLICE NEWS: May 3, 2013

The Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department and area law enforcement wish to warn citizens of a scam that has surfaced intensely in our area.

Individuals have recently been receiving emails that contain fraudulent information stating that the owner’s credit card has been suspended. The message continues on to state that activating the card is “quick and easy” and that they have “suspended it for your protection”.

The email then requests the user to complete a downloaded form that is attached to the original message and provide personal information including social security number, mother’s maiden name, credit card number and PIN number.

Kosciusko County police have indicated that the most recent information was provided by local citizens who do not currently own a credit card and immediately knew that it was a scam.
