Letters seek bank account numbers

The city of Kenai recently received a foreign mailed solicitation form letter seeking bank account information to assist with a transfer of foreign money.

Businesses and individuals are cautioned not to give out personal information and-or bank account numbers, as anyone armed with that information can debit or clean out the account(s). Historically, promises in the form letters to share their supposed "wealth" in return for "hiding" it in your account have not been realized. Usually these form letters are scams, and the public is urged to be cautious.
