Messages asking publlic to punch in account numbers and PINs cited as fraudulent

Police Friday warned of a possible phone scam in the Bay Area seeking bank account information from unsuspecting residents.

Police in South San Francisco said they've received several phone calls from residents complaining about automated phone calls with messages that the residents' bank debit card has been compromised.

The calls ask for residents to enter their account number and PIN number to verify the account information.

Police advised residents the calls are fraudulent and they should not respond to them.
