Fort Dodge Police Monitoring Phishing Scam

Fort Dodge Police are asking residents to beware of a bank scam going around. Local police were notified this week of the phishing scam, where the victim receives a text message that their bank card has been suspended. The victim is then asked to call a local number to reactivate the card by providing their card number and pin number. Police are warning residents not to give out any bank account information without first calling their bank directly. If you do receive this text message, please call the Fort Dodge Police at 515-573-2323 to report theft or fraud.
