Be Aware Arkansans: Two Scams Targeting Cash, Credit Cards

AROUND ARKANSAS-- Two scams have the Secretary of State and Attorney General issuing warnings around the state.
AROUND ARKANSAS-- Two scams have the Secretary of State and Attorney General issuing warnings around the state. One scheme involves mailers asking business owners to pay a private company for an "annual minutes requirement statement." The company asks for $125 in exchange for prepping minutes of the meetings from corporations registered in the state. But lawmakers say there is no requirement to file minutes with the state and definitely no required fee.

If you have a bank account this next scam could cost you; it's all just a scheme to get to your credit card number. An automated telephone call or text message tries to trick you into believing that your cards have been locked by the bank. In order to "unlock" it, customers are told to give their card numbers. More info on both scams is below.
