Scam artist targeting Callaway merchants

The Kingdom of Callaway Chamber of Commerce Monday sent emails to businesses in Callaway County informing them that The Callaway Bank needs chamber members to be aware of a scam artist who is attempting to secure an appointment to review merchants’ identification numbers.

The scam artist claims to be “Ed” with Callaway Bank’s merchant services.

Jeff Jones of Callaway Bank said Monday Callaway Bank does not employ anyone by the name of “Ed” who calls on business customers.
