FRAUD ALERT - February 14, 2020
Members have reported receiving fraudulent text messages and phone calls aimed gaining access to their accounts. The fraudulent texts may ask for confirmation of a recent payment, then indicates their debit card is being deactivated and to expect a phone call. In the call, the caller asks for identifying information like debit or credit card numbers, PINs and answers to security questions that we may use to authenticate you. These texts and calls are NOT from Community First and we will never call you to ask for sensitive account information
like your card, PIN or accounts numbers, online banking credentials, or social security number.
Scams like these use fear and a sense of urgency to persuade you to provide the information they need to access your accounts. The best way to protect yourself from fraudsters like these is to approach it with healthy skepticism.
- Do not trust Caller ID. Phone numbers can be spoofed and may not represent the true caller.
- Never give out personal or identifying information in response to unexpected calls or if you are at all suspicious.
