Regional dispatchers heard reports of a new telephone scam in the area Sunday.

Some residents reported getting a call from somebody claiming to be with Gate City Bank asking for personal information.

A Fargo dispatcher said Sunday that many of those reporting the scam don’t have accounts with Gate City Bank, and said people shouldn’t give out personal information on calls like this.

If the call seems suspicious, it probably is, according to the regional dispatch center. Anyone who gets a potential scam call can contact the banks directly to let them know about it and answer any questions they may have.
