Gift card scam targeting Walmart and Best Buy shoppers

Web Editor - Mason Stevenson

A gift card scam almost got a local woman.

Here's how it works.

The scammer calls and says they know how much money you spend at Walmart and Best Buy and that they want to give you a $100 gift card.

The caller then said he needed the digits from your debit card and stated that they knew it started with a "4."

One bank said all Visa cards start with a "4."

Be careful about providing any personal information over the phone.
