The Durant Police Department Criminal Investigation Division held a meeting Thursday with representatives from five local banks to discuss the numerous incidents of credit card/debit card fraud.
Durant Police Lt. Chris Marcy said that at the time of the meeting, approximately 100 card numbers have been identified as compromised, with an estimated loss of $50,000.
The Durant Police Department in conjunction with the US Secret Service White Collar Crimes Task Force and the banks are analyzing the information as rapidly as possible to both identify the point of the card compromise, and to identify any potential suspects.
“The banks have been in contact with their customers and those customers have not experienced any financial loss due to these fraudulent transactions, and the banks involved want to assure their customers that their financial assets are protected,” Marcy said.
“We would like to urge everyone to monitor their accounts closely and report any suspicious transactions to their respective financial institution or to law enforcement immediately.”
