Active Alerts

Card Fraud is on the rise.

Over the past several weeks there has been a sharp increase in automated PHISHING telephone calls; e-mails and text messages to cardholders stating that cards were closed because of possible fraud. Cardholders are then instructed to call another number to reactivate these cards. Once the cardholder enters their card number and expiration dates the fraud begins. This scam began several years ago but has suddenly been reactivated in recent weeks.

Each week it appears that this fraud scheme is hitting a different area of the country and many unsuspecting cardholders fall for this scheme. Century Bank does not use an automated system and our staff will never ask leading questions as noted above.

Many law enforcement communities have reviewed these cases and although the call may at first appear to be domestic, they are actually being switched through foreign carriers and frequently originate in other countries.

In light of these incidents, we want to remind you to NEVER give any information about your card of this nature over the phone. Century Bank will NEVER request account, card, or PIN information over the phone.

Please feel free to contact Century Bank directly with any questions or concerns.
