Some customers in Park Ridge are receiving automated phone calls saying their bank accounts have been breached.

The calls appear as private numbers on caller ID, and customers are asked to enter the account number, expiration date and the debit card’s three-digit security code to gain access to their account again according to Park Ridge Police.

Banks already have this information and would never use automated systems to notify customers of an account breach police said.
