Suspicious Credit Card Transactions 24 Mar 14

Authorities are investigating a number of suspicious credit and debit card transactions taking place in the City of Fairmont. The complaints began Thursday, when a Fairmont bank notified law enforcement of suspicious card transactions on six account holders. Authorities then alerted other local banks on Friday to have them review accounts for suspicious transactions. Residents have reportedly experienced unauthorized or attempted credit and debit card transactions taking place in Michigan, Arizona, Georgia and other states. The source of the account information breach is still unknown, and local banks and police are recommending residents look over their statements for unknown charges, and if a fraud has occurred or been attempted you should report it to your local law enforcement agency.
