Don't give out credit card info over phone



Harris Savings Bank is warning its credit card customers not to give out information about their cards over the phone.

The bank announced Friday there have been several attempts by people to obtain information from customers for fraudulent use.

The person or persons call and say they are from the bank's security department and need to verify the expiration date of the credit card. If the cardholder gives them an expiration date, they then ask for the card number.

With these two pieces of information, the caller can use the card illegally.

According to Harris Savings Bank, in each instance, customers became suspicious and did not give information out and notified the bank.

The bank advised its customers never to give out a credit card number, expiration date or PIN number over the phone to someone calling and requesting the information.
