Update: Banking Text Scam
Posted By News On @ 6:28 am In Today's Local News | Comments Disabled
Federation Bank has notified us that fraudulent text are being sent to residents in the community saying that their debit cards have been canceled and asking for account information. Banks are not the senders of these texts. The texts are not limited to Federation Bank customers, but are being sent to anyone in the area, from a number of different banks. Federation Bank tells us that no private information has been compromised, and the only way the senders of these texts can access your account is if you call them back and provide account information. Federation Bank is asking people to contact their bank or call 1-800-383-8000 to let them know if you have given the senders of the text any information because they have ways of protecting your account. Only call this number if you have given information, not if you have received the text and not responded. The texts come from a variety of numbers, usually from 319 or 461 area codes. The authorities have been notified, and KCII will continue to monitor this issue.
