Campbellsville Police are warning residents about fake e-mails claiming to be from local banks.
Campbellsville Police Chief Dennis Benningfield said that several local banks have contacted police about the e-mails.
The e-mails ask bank customers to update their account information by clicking on a link. If the customer does this, identity thieves can then intercept their account information as they enter it.
This type of scam is known as "Phishing."
Benningfield said residents should disregard the e-mails.
