Wichita police warned residents Friday of a scam that began this week with a caller asking for credit card numbers.

Police received a report of a person receiving an automated call asking if the last four digits of their credit card were such and such numbers, Officer Jerod Metcalf said.

If the numbers were not correct, the caller told the person to enter in their full credit card number, Metcalf said.

Anyone who receives such a call is asked to call the police at 316-268-4221 and make a report.

“The more information we have,” Metcalf said, “the better our chances will be of identifying a suspect and stopping the calls.”
