(Sioux City) -- Sioux City Police are investigating a phone and internet solicitation scam.  People have been receiving phone calls from individuals that claim to be with Wells Fargo Bank.  The calls are often automated and initially advises the person that the credit card will be shut down.  The call recipient is then directed through a menu and asked to provide a credit card number.  Wells Fargo Bank officials are aware of the fraud being perpetrated against their customers and say they are not the ones doing the calling.  Furthermore, Wells Fargo officials say they would never contact and ask customers to provide personal information or card numbers over the phone.  The Sioux City Police Department advises citizens to be cautious when contacted from unavailable phone numbers.  Credit card customers should never provide their personal information to unknown calls or contact of a suspicious nature.  These calls are usually for the purposes of obtaining sensitive information such as social security numbers of credit card numbers.  The suspects then utilize or sell this information for financial gain.
