Bank of Edmonson County is warning customers about a new text scam that is making its way around phones and devices.
The user will receive a text message from either an unknown number of a number that looks more like a code. The message tells the user that a charge in a random amount has either been completed or is waiting for your approval and provides a link to find out more or to decline the charge; however, the link is a scam that is an effort to either cause harm to your device or access your personal information.
"The Bank will never text you for information," said Michelle Coleman, Bank CEO.
Personal information should never be given over the phone and you should never click any links of which you are unsure. To verify info, one may call the Bank directly at 270-597-2175 to speak with someone who can help.
