Scam Alert


On 5/13/19 and 5/14/19 the Navarro County Sheriff’s Office received two reports from two different victims who received phone calls from a banking institution stating they had fraudulent activity on their account.

The caller already has their full banking account and credit card information, and sounds legitimate when trying to verify the information.

Once they confirm the account information, the victim’s accounts are being used and money withdrawn. The phone number used shows to be the actual bank contacting the victim. That number is being spoofed and the call is not being made from the actual bank.

Be very careful of this fraudulent activity. Don’t be a victim. Don’t give out or confirm your personal information by phone. Hang up the phone and call your financial institution to verify if you’ve had fraudulent activity on your account.
