Authorities advise to always verify with your credit card company


Brandon, MB (CKLQ) - Another scam is making the rounds.

This one via a phone call supposedly from Visa or Mastercard.

A recorded voice prompt notifies you of suspicious pending purchases including the amounts.

The scam then asks you to deal with the issue by selecting 1 or 2 on your phone keypad.

Q Country news checked with the credit card companies who say they do not operate this way.

Authorities remind the public if you receive such a call, never give out personal information.

You're best to hang up and immediately check with your credit card company.
