ST. CHARLES, Ill. (CBS) — A St. Charles man has avoided being scammed by hackers who apparently commandeered an Alabama telephone number to try to raid bank accounts nationwide.
The phone rang and Ron Doodaman of St. Charles answered it.
It was a robo-call telling him his debit card account had been deactivated. Closed.
“Then it asked me if I wanted it to remain closed to press 1 or if I wanted it reopened, press 2. So I pressed 2, then they asked me to enter my 16-digit account number.”
