Bank Scam Targets Childress, Wellington Residents

Childress and Wellington residents beware of phone calls from someone claiming your debit card has been breached. It is a scam.

The caller tells the potential victim his or her debit card from Wellington State Bank or First Bank and Trust has been breached and asks for the debit card number.

The president of First Bank tells us the banks would not contact a customer by phone nor would they ask for personal information. He says the customer would be asked to come into the bank if there were a problem. He urges customers to never give out any kind of personal information over the phone.
