Don't fall for e-mail scams

January 31, 2005

Albany -- Police are warning about an E-Mail scam that targets customers of an Albany bank. The E-mail is intended to get your bank card numbers.

The message, which claims it is from Regions Bank, warns that there have been problems with debit cards. They provide a link that asks for your bank account numbers.

"This particular one asks for the person's debit card number and pin number," said Albany Police Lt. Tracey Barnes. "The bank has told us that if anyone asks for those numbers, not to respond to it. Because they never would ask you those."

Police warn you not to give your bank account numbers to anyone, especially on the Internet.
