Port Isabel-South Padre PRESS

emergency-lightsSouth Padre Island police are investigating a possible scam involving debit cards, according to Naida Robles, a public information officer for the city.

Robles said as of Friday, 23 Island residents have reported their debit cards had been compromised. She said the exact number of people who might have been affected is currently unknown because non-locals would have to report the problem to their own police departments.

Robles said the South Padre Island Police Department is working to isolate the source of the scam. As more people report problems, the police will have a better idea of where the problem originated, she said.
