(WDAZ-TV) - Job Service North Dakota is warning residents of a phone scam claiming to be from a bank issuing unemployment insurance debit cards.

The robo-calls are random and target recipients of unemployment insurance benefits, but both unemployment insurance claimants and those who've never received unemployment insurance benefits have gotten calls.

Customers have been asked for their unemployment insurance debit card number, PIN and the last four digits of their Social Security number.

"We actively work to protect unemployment insurance claimants and their personal information. We have been in contact with our unemployment insurance debit card issuer, U.S. Bank, and they are investigating the situation," Unemployment Insurance Director Darren Brostrom said.

Job Service North Dakota nor U.S. Bank ever ask for debit card information in emails, text messages or phone calls.

If you've been called and asked for your information, contact Job Service at 701-328-4995 to report the incident.
