PERRY COUNTY - "Your card has been suspended," said the robotic female voice captured July 25 by an answering machine. "To reactivate your card, please call the security department at (515) 414-3121." The same warning was being sent as text messages to cell phones. Anyone tempted to follow the instructions was being led into a trap intended to empty their bank account.
The News received word of the scam that day and included a warning in last Monday's edition.
