Topeka bank account cards compromised

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Topeka police are investigating reports of credit card fraud affecting customers of at least two banks.

Police told The Topeka Capital-Journal (http://bit.ly/12h4gQ0 ) on Tuesday that two people reported fraudulent charges on cards they used at a local business.

An employee of a bar called the Lazy Toad told the newspaper that police were looking at its computer.

CoreFirst Bank & Trust president Kurt Kuta says anti-fraud software caught unusual charges to some customers, who were issued new credit cards. Kuta would not say how many customers were affected except that it was fewer than the 500 reported earlier.

Fidelity State Bank & Trust has issued new cards to 25 customers. Capital City Bank is checking whether its customers were affected.

Police say they haven't found any evidence of deliberate wrongdoing in the case.
