The Amarillo Police Department is warning citizens of the latest phone scam in the area.

The scam directly targets customers of the Amarillo Federal Community Credit Union.  The bogus calls come from an 806 area code.

Amarillo Police have gotten several reports of voice calls and text messages telling them their Mastercard has been compromised or locked.  Return calls to the number refer callers to a second number, which plays a recording that asks for a 16 digit credit card number.

Police caution against sharing personal credit card or banking information over the phone or through text.  Banks and credit unions will not ask for your information.
