Va Tax Officials Warn About Refund Debit Card Scam

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - State taxation officials are warning Virginians about a phone scam related to the new refund debit cards.
 
The Virginia Department of Taxation says it has received reports of phone calls being made to individuals telling them their "Way2Go prepaid MasterCard is locked for security reasons."
 
Officials say the automated caller then tries to get the listener to give out personal information.
 
The department says this is a phone scam and that it never makes automated calls or solicits personal information in this manner.
 
For tax-related questions or information, the agency suggests calling its customer service department at 804-367-8031.
