(Lander, WY) – Meridian Trust Federal Credit Union of Lander has shared they have received numerous reports of scam calls today, April 15, claiming they are from the Best Buy tech help service Geek Squad.
According to a Credit Union employee, people are being asked to access online banking accounts, so that the “Geek Squad representative” can take care of a supposed refund overage.
Once the line of credit is opened to check the online status, the scammers then somehow have full access to the banking accounts.
These scams can also occur through email, and have been happening at a national level for some time now.
Best Buy has released this statement on how to spot potential scams, as well as who to contact if you feel you have been on the receiving end of any scamming attempts.
Be advised to consult your bank before making any transactions that seem suspicious and ask for personal banking info.
