Salina Bank Helps Protect Customer’s Account

KSAL StaffJanuary 31, 2019

A Salina bank comes to the aid of one of its customers, shielding them from electronic theft.

Police Detective Sergeant David Villanueva tells KSAL News that staff at First Bank Kansas contacted a 29-year-old female after they noticed a request for a $2,880 electronic check to be sent to an account in Mississippi.

The woman told the bank she did not authorize the request.

Further investigation revealed that her account had four other pending transfers, totaling more than $12,000 that were then prevented from being okayed.

Police say the scammer was also in the process of changing the woman’s phone number and email address on her bank account so all communication about the account would be re-routed to the thieves without her knowledge.
