LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Attorney General Jon Bruning has issued a consumer alert about a phone scam targeting Nebraskans.

The attorney general’s office said Friday that it has received complaints about automated calls from 206-958-8754. A recording tells receivers that they need to reactivate a suspended or compromised debit card.

Bruning says banks, debit and credit card numbers should never be given to unknown people or businesses. The information can be used to make fraudulent purchases or to withdraw money from the account.

Nebraskans who have responded to this scam are encouraged to use a trusted number to call their debit card issuers immediately.

Residents who want more information or to file a complaint can call the attorney general’s consumer protection division at 800-727-6432.
