(PAOLI) - Orange County Sheriff's detectives have received a number of complaints from area residents about more bank fraud schemes going on.

Orange County Sheriff Richard Dixon says people in Orange County have been receiving phone calls, which he describes as, "very realistic," telling people their ATM card had been frozen and they needed to provide information in order to get it unlocked.

The information they are asking for, however, is all they need to clean your bank accounts out, and, as was revealed in a piece on ABC News' program 20/20, your account may be wiped blank in a literal manner of seconds.

Dixon says he has been informed by all area financial institutions that they do not ask for personal information over the phone as a matter of policy.

If you receive one of these calls, hang up, and call police.
