Bank Scam

Local banks are advising their customers about a identity theft phone scam. According to a press release from a number of local banks, individuals are being contacted by an automated message that claims to be someone from a local financial institution, calling to inform the individual that their debit or credit cards have been compromised or locked. The person is then asked to press # one on their phone to continue. If the caller continues through the phone menu system, they’ll be prompted to enter their debit or credit card information including the card number, pin number and experation date. Caller ID shows the calls are being generated from Kent, Washington and according to local investigators, the phone numbers of the fraudulent calls have been used in simlar nationwide scams. If you recieve one of those calls, get in touch with your local police department.
