BBB warns of Huntington Bank scam

Top Stories

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Have you received a letter in the mail from Huntington National Bank about opening an account even though you didn’t? The Better Business Bureau Serving Northern Indiana says its a scam — and recommends contacting the bank directly to ensure a fraudulent account was not opened in your name.

The letter thanks Hoosiers for opening an account with Huntington National Bank. It then asks for a deposit to be made, warning that the accounts with a $0 balance will close within 90 days.

In its Facebook post, the BBB Serving Northern Indiana says it has gotten more than 50 reports of the scam just this week.
