Fraudulent Call Alert

Local law enforcement has made us aware of numerous reports they’ve received regarding automated calls about debit card, credit card fraud.

The fraudulent caller states that the call recipient’s card has been deactivated due to fraud and instructs the call recipient to input their card number into the phone. Attempts to trace the source of the calls have been unsuccessful at this time.

Customer Service is here to help with any questions or concerns you may have. If in doubt, give us a call.
