Bank accounts accessed, used in Florida

Centennial Bank accounts compromised

Posted: May 14, 2013 - 11:42am

Several Conway residents reported to the police over the weekend that their Centennial bank accounts had been accessed and used to make purchases in Florida.

At least four police reports from the weekend indicated that Conway residents who bank at Centennial Bank had suspicious charges associated with their accounts from Target, McDonalds, Home Depot, 7-11 and Walgreens. The incident reports showed fraudulent charges ranging from $146.92 to $753.58.

Each of the victims were told to contact the three major credit bureaus about the incident.

According to the police reports, the victims had already contacted their bank and were asked to obtain a police report on the incident before Centennial would replace the funds.

The bank’s marketing manager, Eric King, said the bank tries to jump on these kinds of things early and make sure the incidents are recorded with the police.

“That’s part of our philosophy, to get the police department to fill out a report as quick as possible,” he said.

He also said it is important for people to check their accounts to make sure everything looks right.

“It’s one of those things we still focus on, making sure our customers are aware of all security issues,” he said. “Be very careful when using debit cards and credit cards.”

RE: $1800 stolen via debit BUT i had my only card...

While working a straight 12hr shift, afterwards went to ATM & all $1800 of my money totally whipped out! But I had my one & only card, lucky the ATM I used had a camera plus installed inside my workplace!
So somehow I used all my money in 12hrs in 3 different states, overall used at WalMarts in OK, MO, & TX!? HMM again working in Little Rock, AR. Got the guy on cameras but not clear & he obviously made a fake card with my number!!
Oh I got my $ back, bank tried to argue as " he had my card right!" No I did & thanks for the ATM camera at my work, our identity isn't ours anymore I just happen to purchase online on a scam, or pick of the draw! Only you can educate yourself and stay safe!!
