FRAUDULENT TELEPHONE SOLICITATION
A fraudulent telephone scam has been reported in our area. Customers are receiving a recorded telephone call, which is displayed as an “Unknown Caller” on their caller ID. The recording states, “In order to keep your debit card activated, you must press “1” and enter your debit card number.” This is a scam. Do not respond to this telephone call.
IMPOSTER FDIC EMAIL
The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) has become aware of emails appearing to be sent from the FDIC that are asking recipients to download and open a “personal FDIC insurance file” to check their deposit insurance coverage. These emails are fraudulent and were not sent by the FDIC. Do not respond to these emails.
