KINGSPORT, Tenn. (WJHL) – Eastman Credit Union has issued a Security Alert on their website for customers to frequently check their accounts for any unauthorized or suspicious activity.
The alert says this is as a precaution because of reports of an increased level of card fraud related to card skimmers at local gas pumps.
Skimmers allow thieves to get card information from a customer when the card is swiped.
The alert goes on to say that if you believe you have been impacted, use the ECU Card Control feature in the Mobile App to temporarily block your card use, or call 423-229-8200 and choose option 4.
ECU said customers are protected from any fraudulent charges related to this type of criminal activity.

The Jonesborough Police Department posted an alert on their Facebook page writing they recently did a report where a skimmer was used at the Eastman ATM at Food City. The department is urging the community to be vigilant.
