Bank warns about fraud

Oklahoma City-based First Fidelity Bank issued a warning on Thursday to its customers about fraudulent phone calls from people who claim to represent the bank and ask for debit card information. The bank said Thursday that it had received numerous reports about the fraudulent calls from customers, as well as people who do not hold an account. First Fidelity is urging its customers never to give personal or banking information over the phone. “The best way to guard against bank fraud is to use common sense,” First Fidelity CEO Lee Symcox said. First Fidelity Bank customers who wish to report fraud or have questions can call (405) 416-2223 in Oklahoma City, or (918) 728-6345 in Tulsa.
