COLDWATER – An area bank is warning people of a scam that is going on.
In a posting on their Facebook page, Century Bank And Trust announced that scammers are calling their customers from local numbers. The caller says they are with the Bank's fraud department and that there is an Amazon transaction that is either trying to come out of their account or was deposited into their account by mistake.
The scammer provides the customer with their employee identification number, and then gives the Bank's routing number to prove that they are from the bank. The routing number is public knowledge.
Century Bank And Trust says their employees don't have identification numbers, and that this is a scam. If you receive a call like this, the bank advises you to hang up and call them directly to verity what you have been told.
