Scams Target Flood Victims

The Sioux City Police Department has received reports of con artists contacting those impacted by the flood posing as cell phone carriers. The scam is an attempt to obtain victims credit card and bank account numbers by "verifying" payment methods. 

The Con Artist tells the vicitm that their cell phone payment did not go through and needs to be resubmitted. Once credit card or debit card information is obtained, charges are made or the bank account emptied. The scam is mainly targeting those in the Dakota Dunes area now that they are receiving national attention. This and other scams are expected to expand to other areas affected by the rising waters.
