Fraudulent ATM/Debit Card Scam

March 14, 2014

A telephone phishing scam is targeting some ATM/Debit cardholders. Here is what you should know in order to keep your personal and financial information secure.

What You Should Know

Cardholders may receive what appear to be automated phone calls or texts, telling them that their ATM/Debit cards are locked.

The automated message requests call recipients to "Press 1" where they are instructed to enter their 16-digit card number into their telephone key pad. Once this is entered, the scammers are then requesting the card's Personal Identification Number (PIN). The scam artists are attempting to obtain customer card numbers and PINs in order to gain access to customer accounts via ATMs or POS (point of sale) purchases.

What You Should Do — and What You Shouldn't Do
