BBB warns of recent Bank of Whitman scams

The Better Business Bureau serving Eastern Washington, North Idaho and Montana has noticed a rash of spam efforts directed at people who might be members of the Bank of Whitman.

The BBB said, in an announcement, that people are getting message purportedly from the bank.

The messages cover a variety of possible contact reasons; "your account is closed" or "your account needs to be updated" are two examples mentioned. Some come in text messages, others in e-mail.

As with any curious or unexpected message from any bank, the BBB wants people to avoid responding. That's rule one.

Rule two, contact the BBB if you want to report the spam.: www.bbb.org or 509-455-4200 or 800-356-1007. 

Rule three, call your bank and insure that you have security safeguards to prevent anyone from making changes in the account or making a transaction.
