TULSA - A new scam targeting credit card holders isn't too hard to spot, if you know what to look for when someone calls.
KRMG Consumer Guru Clark Howard says the caller will tell you there may be a problem with your card, and ask if it begins with a particular four or five digits.
Problem is, there are a limited number of card issuers, and each one uses the same numbers on their cards.
The scammers will try to convince you to give them the rest of your credit card number, at which point they'll use it to rip you off for a lot of money.
If for any reason you think there may be a legitimate problem with your card, you should never give any information to a caller.
Instead, make the call yourself, using the number printed on the back of the card.
At least that way, you'll know you're actually talking to the credit card company, and not to a thief.
