|Area police warn of new bank scam|
The Eagle River Police Department was notified Thursday of a scam specific to the North Woods area.
Local residents have been receiving phone calls indicating that their debit cards issued by Nicolet National Bank (formerly Mid-Wisconsin Bank) have been suspended due to the recent name change of the bank.
The caller then asks the individual to confirm their debit cards number and expiration date in order
to reactivate the account, according to authorities.
The Eagle River Police Department warned against giving the individuals any account information.
Those who have received these phone calls and did give out information should contact their bank immediately and take any necessary action to safeguard their accounts, said police.
They also may contact the Eagle River Police Department at (715) 479-1941.
