The Consumer Hotline has received more than 20 telephone calls from Central Oregon about this scam. At least one consumer fell prey to the scam and lost $515 immediately after providing their bank account number. This is a significant number of calls for such a short period of time
Another scam received in Eagle Point said access to internet banking had been temporarily restricted because of several suspicious login attempts from an unrecognized computer. And it goes on finally asking you to go to a site claiming to be PremierWest. Don’t go there. It is just one more scam.
Anyone who believes they have been approached by a scammer should contact the Oregon Department of Justice Consumer Hotline at 1-877-877-9392 or www.oregonattorneygeneral.gov.
