FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A Fargo-based bank is warning the public about a phone scam.

Gate City Bank officials say callers are seeking confidential debit card information, such as names, card numbers or passwords. Both Gate City Bank customers and non-customers are being targeted.

Gate City officials say the scheme involves computerized random dialer that can dial thousands of phone numbers at one time. Some of the calls inform people their debit cards have been blocked and ask for an immediate response.

Gate City Bank has 34 banking offices across North Dakota and Minnesota.
