Idaho First Hit by Robo-Scam


An Idaho bank is warning its customers of a scam hitting a good many of its customers. Officials with Idaho First Bank, headquartered in McCall, are alerting their customers that a pre-recorded message sent out on Sunday was fraudulent.

Customers and some non-customers received calls stating, "Your Idaho First Bank debit card has been frozen. To take care of this, please press 1." The automated recording then asked for the 16 digit debit card number and expiration date.

On Monday, Bank officials were busy contacting customers that an automated recording would never request personal information. Idaho First is also assuring customers that "there has been no breach of any bank systems during this attack."
