Big Island Police Warning the Public About Credit Card Scam

Big Island police are warning the public about a credit card scam.

Several citizens have reported receiving suspicious messages on their mobile devices. A recorded messages claims that the caller’s credit card or debit card has been deactivated due to a security breach and directs the recipient to press “1” to reactivate the card. Upon pressing “1,” the potential victim is directed to a live voice, usually a person with a foreign accent, who asks for confidential financial information, such as the card number, expiration date and other information that could lead to identity theft.

Police urge anyone who receives such a call to hang up without providing any identifying or financial information. In addition, they should call their wireless service provider to find out how they can block future nuisance calls originating from that number.

Big Island Police Conducting DUI Checkpoints and Roving Patrols Through Halloween

Big Island police will conduct DUI checkpoints and roving patrols from Friday through Halloween, which falls on Monday. The effort is part of a national and statewide campaign called “Drive sober or get pulled over.”

Sergeant Robert Pauole, head of the Hawaiʻi Police Department’s Traffic Services Section, pointed out that drugs, alcohol or both have been factors in 72 percent of the 18 traffic fatalities we’ve experienced so far this year. He urges all motorists to be extra cautious in the next few days, when a large number of pedestrians may be out for Halloween festivities.

“Be especially careful in residential areas by slowing down and looking for keiki on roadways and shoulders,” Pauole said. “If you plan to drink, please don’t drive. Make arrangements to ride with a designated, sober and licensed driver before you start drinking. If you can’t find one, don’t take a chance—take a taxi.”

Police offer the following tips for pedestrian safety over the Halloween weekend:

  • Make sure children are supervised as they cross the street.
  • Have children get out of cars on the curb side, not on the traffic side.
  • Drive below the posted speed limit during trick-or-treating hours.
  • Watch for children on roadways and on medians.
  • Exit driveways and alleyways carefully.

The Police Department wishes everyone a fun and safe Halloween.
