Darren Doyle, story:
Michelle Coleman, CEO of Bank of Edmonson County has informed the VOICE that county residents have received phone calls today from a scammer claiming to sell medical ID bracelets under the bank's name.
"The number on the caller id somehow shows 'Bank of Edmonson County' but it's not us," said Coleman. "The caller identifies themselves as 'Gene' and says they are selling medical ID bracelets for the bank but that's certainly not true."
Coleman says Bank of Edmonson County apologizes for any confusion but they don't and never have sold any such product. Furthermore, she advises that the bank doesn't call customers to try to sell products or services over the phone.
If you receive such a call, your are advised to refrain from giving the caller any personal information and to hang up immediately.
