THIBODAUX, LA — Thibodaux Chief of Police Scott Silverii wants our partners to be aware of a new scam circulating in the area.
It starts with a text message explaining your card has been declined. They then ask that you contact a specific number. They will most likely ask for personal information and/or money at that point. Do not respond or send money because it is a scam. If you have concerns, contact your bank directly.
There have been two police reports filed so far.
If you receive a text message requesting the above, or anything similar, please contact the Thibodaux Police Department at (985) 446-7279.
