Fraudulent debit/credit card charges on the rise locally

There has been an increase in San Angelo residents reporting fraudulent credit or debit card charges. 

Kim Perrine, CEO/President of Concho Valley Credit Union, said in the past two weeks she has seen a rise in the number of fraudulent charges being reported. She suspects that scammers made the charges after people used their cards at a local fast food restaurant.

Perrine said, “The best way to know if scammers have your information is to keep a close eye on your bank account. You won’t know if your card is compromised until the fraudulent charges hit your bank account. Once they do, contact your financial institution and make a police report.”
