Credit Card Scams on the Rise

Credit Card Scams on the Rise

There seems to always be another scam to watch out for these days, some are new and some are just rehashed versions of past scams. The Sheriff’s Office has received several calls recently regarding a credit card scam in our area.

According to victims, this is how the transaction occurs. Your phone will ring and if you have caller id a 1-888 number will appear. The caller will offer a low fixed rate interest on a credit card or credit card consolidation. The caller will then ask for credit card numbers, expiration dates, social security numbers, mother’s maiden name and other verification passwords.

Once the caller has obtained the information they will tell you they need to process the information and will call you back. In addition there will be a one time financial fee which will vary in amount.

Biker gang member points gun at El Dorado Hills resident

EL DORADO HILLS, CA - An El Dorado Hills man was nearly mistaken for a Vagos gang member during a shoot out inside Sparks' John Asguaga's Nugget Hotel Friday evening.

Rudy Reyes said he heard shots fired then found himself right next to the Hells Angel shooter.

"I was actually 8 feet away from the down Hell's Angels that was sitting there and you could see blood," said Reyes. He said shots were being fired from a member walking around the casino floor seemingly trying to protect a fallen member.

"He was just walking around, just, pop, pop, pop.... pop pop pop... basically yelling everyone - just down."

Reyes said he stayed calm - his only defense for what would happen next.

"He was right there with the gun pointed directly at me. You never forget eyes staring at you - of course even the barrel of a gun," said Reyes.
