Hanceville police are cautioning residents to be on guard against a sophisticated debit card wire scam that has leached hundreds of thousands of dollars from customers whose card numbers have been stolen remotely from pay terminals at one or more local businesses. The primary target in the theft so far has been the Dairy Queen restaurant. It's unsure whether this is ultimately involving other businesses. At the Dairy Queen location, somebody has apparently tapped into the Internet server and hacked into the debit card system. They are printing the customers’ debit card numbers and using them all over California and Georgia.
