Andrew Adams, KSL NewsradioThe latest threat to your personal information is here in Utah. It's called, "vishing." Commerce Department Executive Director Francine Giani says Utahns are already getting hit up with e-mails and phone calls asking them to verify their bank accounts.

"I mean, watch out. Banks are not calling you for your information, I can promise you that. They already have that information." She says it's scary because the average person might not know it's a con.

Giani says the Division of Consumer Protection has already fielded a handful of complaints. Luckily, nobody's been duped yet.
