To keep our customers informed, we will routinely share descriptions of common scams we are seeing within the Bank's footprint:

Bank Imposters

Customers are being targeted by scammers who are calling customers pretending to be a bank employee, reporting there has been fraudulent activity on their account. The phone call shows a spoofed bank phone number, but is not coming from the bank.

The scammer then explains that the customer needs to enter his/ her pin number in order to set up a new bank account. The scammer will gain access to this account and can steal their money. One woman lost $2,000 in 30 minutes because of this scam.

Our bank will never call customers and ask for your PIN number, password, or any other sensitive security information. The best thing to do is hang up and call your bank using the published number on the back of your debit card or on the bank's official website, to see if there has been an account issue.
