After getting more than 60 complaints from residents, Berlin police are warning people about a new phone scam.
Here's how it works: People receive an automated call stating that there is a fraud alert and their MasterCard credit card was canceled. They are then asked to enter their credit card number.
Several would-be victims called their credit card companies and found out that it was a hoax. Even the Berlin Police Department received the scam phone call.
Police don't know where the calls are coming from, but said they came from several different areas of the country.
To make sure you avoid falling victim to the scam, never release your personal or financial information over the phone.
