Sheriff's department warns about scam using gift cards

WYNNE, AR (KAIT) - The Cross County Sheriff's Department is warning residents about a new scam hitting the area.

Residents have reported receiving Walmart gift cards that have a telephone number on the back. The instructions say to call the number and activate the card.

When you call the number, someone asks for your bank information, according to a post on the sheriff's Facebook page.

You should not call the number and never give out personal information out over the phone.
