The Cumberland City Police Department is reminding citizens to be cautious when contacted by financial institutions or businesses indicating your account is “red flagged” or “compromised.” Typically, those entities won’t contact you directly and it is best practice to obtain a contact name or extension. If a financial institution contacts you and tries to verify your account information, remember, they already have your account information and would not request a bank number or routing number. Scammers are also using bogus text messages, to trick you into providing personal information or account numbers. Exercise caution when giving out any personal information.
