The City of Plymouth has been notified of a possible phone scam using the city’s name and asking for credit card information. While the city is aware of only one incident and has no reason to believe this is a widespread scam, this presents a good opportunity to remind citizens to be careful.
The caller ID identified the number as a originating from a city department. The call was a recording that claimed to be someone from the City of Plymouth and requested the recipient’s credit card information. If you have received a similar call, please contact Abby Collins at the City of Plymouth, 574-936-2124 to let us know.
The city will never call you using a recording to ask for credit card or other personal information. Nor will the city ever request your credit card information over the phone.
If you receive a call from a number or person claiming to be from the City of Plymouth, you should not give them sensitive information about yourself. If you think the call is legitimate, you may ask for the person’s name and department. Then hang up, look up the department number in the phone book or on the city’s website, and call back to ask for the person.
