On 09/05/13 the Eagle River Police Department was notified of a scam occurring in the 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 card number and... expiration in order to re-activate the account.
Area residents are warned against giving these individuals any account information as this is a scam.
Anyone who has received these phone calls and DID give out information is advised to contact their bank immediately and take any necessary precautions to safeguard their accounts. They are also encouraged to contact the Eagle River Police Department at (715)479-4343. (Only if you gave information)
