Local banks have asked us to warn the public about a new scam affecting area financial institutions.

 

Fraudsters are making calls posing as a bank’s or other financial institution’s “Fraud Department.” If you receive a call asking for your banking credentials, HANG UP and call your bank directly.  NEVER give out your banking credentials over the phone unless YOU initiate the call first.
