Fraud Alert for Wells Fargo Customers

October 4, 2011 at 8:00 pm CDT - The Sioux City Police Department has been receiving calls from citizens in regards to phone and internet solicitations from individuals that claim to be with Wells Fargo Bank. These calls are often automated and initially advise that the card holder’s credit card will be shut down. The call recipient is then directed through a menu and asked to provide a credit card number. As a result we have contacted Wells Fargo Directly and they are aware of ongoing fraud being perpetrated against Wells Fargo Customers. They also confirmed that they would never contact and ask customers to provide personal information or card numbers over the phone.

Attempted Abduction Reported in Riverside

At about 12:00 two children, a female who is 11 years old and a male who is 9 years old, saw a van with two males in it. One of the males told the children that they were friends with their mother and she was hurt. He told the children that they needed to get into the van with them.

Rubbernecker Takes out Speed Camera

speed camera accidentA local woman was elevated to folk hero status after hitting the speed camera that was stationed at the Hamilton Blvd exit on I29 southbound. An investigation of the accident found that she was distracted by the rising waters of the river.

It is tough for drivers to not notice the Mighty Mo’ and the Big Sioux as they leave their banks near I29 but it is important that drivers stay focused.

“At least it was the speed camera and not an officer that was hit,” said Chief Doug Young speaking of the crash.

With the heavy construction on I29 and now the flood, the focus of drivers needs to be on driving. There has been an increase of accidents in construction areas.With tighter roads and uneven surfaces, the safety of construction workers and other motorists is dependent on undistracted driving.
