Charles King, vice president of the Bank of Holly Springs reports that this week approximately 20 phone calls have been reported to the bank and determined as fraudulent. Apparently targeting the elderly, the callers falsely identify themselves as representatives of the bank and ask bank customers to update and/or verify their personal banking information.
King says that under no circumstances should anyone give out any personal banking information over the telephone. He stated that the Bank of Holly Springs does not call its customers and request account information verification.
"The scam is apparently in full swing in Holly Springs at this time," he continued.
