Recently, there has been an increase in Fraud Alert Scam attempts in our area. That's why we're asking you to beware of unexpected text messages and calls about supposed fraudulent activity on your account or debit card – even if the sender/caller appears to be from Bank of Canton.
You may be asked for your debit card or account number, passcodes, or login credentials “for security purposes” or “to verify your identity” to resolve the situation. That’s how you can tell it’s a scam: Bank of Canton will never ask you for account numbers, card numbers, verification codes, or login information.
Fraudsters can spoof the bank’s phone number on your caller ID display, and impersonate customer service agents very convincingly. But they will ask you to provide information that a real Bank of Canton employee would never ask for.
