Press Release

 

Christian County Sheriff Bruce Kettelkamp would like to warn the citizens of Christian County of a phishing scam. Many residences have been receiving automated phone calls from an unavailable phone number. The recording state that it’s the First National Bank of Pana and that the bank is temporary suspending their debt card.

 

The message then request the residence to press #1 at which time they will get someone who will ask for information to reactivate the debit card. They will ask for the account number and pin in order for them to reactivate the card.

 

This is a complete scam and Sheriff Kettelkamp recommends that you immediately hang up on the call and contact you’re your bank if you have any concerns with your account.
