Warning: Phone Scam
By Jim Martin, Security Officer, Bell State Bank & Trust
A phone scam is currently affecting consumers in North Dakota and Minnesota. The calls are trying to fraudulently obtain private information by impersonating a legitimate business. We have had several reports where consumers have received automated phone calls asking to verify their debit card number to activate or unlock their card. If you receive a phone call like this, do not give out any personal information.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding your account, please call our Customer Service Center at 701-298-1550 or toll-free 800-450-8949.
Additional information and guidance for consumers related to consumer protection may be found the Consumer Federation of America website.
