Phone Scam Targeting Local Residents

Local police are urging residents to be cautious after multiple reports of a phone scam that operates through text messages.


Targets of the scam get a message that claims to be from a local bank, claiming their credit or debit card has been deactivated and instructing the recipient to call a number in the 217 area code.  The Sangamon County Sheriff's Office says the message is a scam, aimed at extracting card numbers or other personal information from victims.


If you receive such a message, police say you should not call the number on the message.  Instead, call your financial institution or local law enforcement.
