credit card fraudSCHOOLCRAFT,Mich. — According to a news release the Schoolcraft Police Department is investigating an attempted fraud that occurred on Tuesday January 28th at about 10am.

A Schoolcraft resident reported that she received a call from a man reporting to be from Visa.  The man knew her address and phone number.  The man reported to the victim that someone had used her Visa card in Texas at a Best Buy charging 2300 dollars.   The man then asked the victim for her Visa card number.  The victim refused to give the man her number and the call was ended.  She checked with Visa and found that there was no bogus charge on her account.

If you become suspicious when receiving one of these calls it always best to call the credit card company yourself with a number you already have for them.  Do not call a number supplied by the caller
