Scam Spoofs Local Bank
Officials at Fox Valley Savings Bank warned Fond du Lac Police about a scam they were hearing about from their customers. Police Officer Erik Foster says someone posing as a bank employee was calling residents telling them they were eligible for a break on the price of medical equipment. The bank is not selling medical equipment or devices. They were spoofing the bank’s phone number as well. Foster warns it is a scam. Police heard about the scam for the first time this past week. Foster recommends if you have questions look up the bank’s telephone number and ask them. That way you will know for sure if the bank called you for a specific reason. Foster says you should never give out personal or financial information over the phone.
