The Bank of Edmonson County is warning their customers of a phone scam attempt regarding false debit card fraud allegations.
"We have been made aware of a fraud scheme in our area regarding BOEC debit cards," said Donna Bagshaw, COO & BSA-Deposit Compliance Officer.
She stated that Bank of EC customers have received calls from someone with a strong, non-American accent, saying they are from Bank of Edmonson County. They advise the customer that someone has been using their debit card and asks to verify a certain sequence of digits in their debit card number.
"In situations of actual fraud, we do not ask our customers to verify their card numbers by phone," Mrs. Bagshaw stated. "If anyone receive a call from someone stating they are from Bank of Edmonson County and they do not feel good about it, please hang up and call us at 270-597-2175."
