Several more complaints of credit card fraud involving customers of United Bank have been reported.
It is un-clear how the card number and PIN numbers are being obtained at this time. At this time most of the cards are being used at area Kroger stores where the suspect(s) will purchase Visa Gift Cards.
The investigation also revealed that most businesses are not asking for proper identification when person(s) are using credit/debit cards and it is highly recommended until these fraud cases can be cleared to request identification from person(s) using credit/debit cards. This is for the protection of the business as well as the customers.
Everyone is asked to check their bank statements on a regular basis to make sure unknown transactions are not being charged to the account. Anyone who notices an unknown transaction should report that activity to the bank and then to local Law Enforcement.
