The Bottom Line: NetSpend debit card call

Updated: Friday, June 13 2014, 11:39 PM EDT
NISKAYUNA -- A Bottom Line Alert about a new phone scam that's making a grab for your debit card information.

CBS 6's Dori Marlin was tipped off to the call after she received it herself.

It's an automated phone call from a 919 area code in North Carolina, that right away says your "NetSpend debit card has been suspended."

It then prompts you to enter your account information.

Dori didn't do anything - she hung up, and later did some digging.

Turns out NetSpend is a real type of prepaid debit card. 

The company tells Dori, it has heard several reports of this phone call.  But it also says, it will never tell customers to disclose that information by phone.

So if you get one of the calls, don't give out your account information; instead, simply hang up. The Bottom Line: NetSpend debit card call
