RICHMOND (WUSA) -- Virginia Department of Taxation officials say scammers are targeting people with the new Virginia Tax Refund Debit Card.
According to officials, scammers call the card holders and tell them their Way2Go prepaid Mastercard is locked for security reasons. Then the automated caller tries to get the victim to give them personal information.
The Department Of Taxation does not use automated calls or ask for personal information over the phone. Officials ask anyone that gets a call like the one described to hang up.
If you have any questions about the scam or the card, call 804-367-8031.
