Debit Card "Phishing" Scam

Be suspicious if you receive an automated call (with a caller id of 0000000000) with a recording claiming to represent a local bank, indicating your debit card has been frozen and personal information is needed before the card can be used again. This appears to be a variation on a scam known as "phishing."

The American Bankers Association Education Foundation recommends never giving out your personal financial information in response to an unsolicited phone call, fax, or email, no matter how official it may seem. Your best response is simply no response. If you should receive one of these calls or any other variation of this scam from an individual or entity claiming to represent Patapsco Bank or if you believe you have already become a victim contact Patapsco Bank at 410-285-1010.
