Letter to Editor Alert to Phone Scams

The week of July 16, customers of Lamar banks and credit unions started receiving calls on both cell and land line phones from a number that displayed as 000 000 0000.  These calls tried to identify themselves as your financial institution and tell you that your debit card had been locked.  You only had to press a number on the phone, give them your account number and PIN number and it would unlock your debit card…..FOR THEIR USE!!! 

This is a phishing scam and should be ignored.  NEVER, NEVER, NEVER give out your account number and especially NEVER give your PIN number to anyone.  If you received one of these calls and did give the information, please check your account and notify the financial institution.
