City of Tualatin warns of telephone fraud

People in Tualatin have been receiving fraudulent phone calls purportedly from the city offices in what appears to be a credit card scam operation, according to the city.

The phone number used by the scammers is similar to the numbers assigned to the city offices, and callers have been asking for credit card information, the city warned in a fraud alert posted to its website Friday.

“The City of Tualatin would like you to know that we will never contact you asking for credit card information over the phone,” the alert added. “Please do not give personal information to strangers over the phone.”

The city is encouraging anyone who is suspicious about being contacted to call or email city staff to verify that the information they have received is correct.
