Public Alert: Phone Scam

The Winchester Police Departments urges area residents to be wary of phone calls claiming to be from the Bank of Clarke County. Multiple residents report receiving automated calls indicated that debit card information has been restricted or compromised and advising the individual to respond and provide personal account information. Last week some residents received similar messages by text message.  Please do not respond to these calls or give out any of your personal information over the phone or through other electronic means. The Bank of Clarke Country is cooperating with the Winchester Police Department to determine the source of the breach. If you have responded to these messages and given your personal information please call 800-555-2273 to have your card blocked.
