Sumter Police warn AT&T customers of phone scam
SUMTER, S.C. (WACH)-- The Sumter County Sheriff's Department is warning residents of a phone scam happening to AT&T customers in the area.
According to the department, AT&T wireless customers are receiving phone calls from an automated system that shows up on the Caller ID as their own number.
The automated message claims to be from AT&T and states that the person's wireless account has been flagged for security purposes and then asks the caller to enter the last four digits of the primary account holder's Social Security number.
Investigators warn that if you do receive a phone call and YOUR mobile number shows on the caller ID, please do not answer.
Under no circumstance should you give such personal information to an automated system.
