Protect Yourself from Telephone Scams:

The telephone is one of the most often used sources for criminal activity. Here’s how it works. Your phone rings. The caller claims to be from your financial institution, or any other source. They begin asking questions about you and your account. This could be a telephone scam called Vishing or Phishing. Someone is attempting to steal your identity. And it happens to millions of Americans every year.

Follow these steps to protect yourself from most types of identity theft telephone scams:

  • Never offer personal or account information over the phone without verifying the caller’s identity.
  • If you are uncertain of the identity of a caller, hang up and initiate the call yourself using a known phone number.
  • Do not call any phone number received in a voice message or email asking for personal information. It could lead you to a phony answering system.
  • As a general guideline, be highly suspicious any time you are requested to provide personal information over the phone.


Vacation Reminder:

Our fraud department works hard to be very vigilant about any unusual activity on your debit card, which can be a great way to detect debit card fraud. For your protection, if you have vacation plans coming up, please take a moment to notify us before you leave. This will help avoid troubles and suspicions of unusual activity. Thank you.
