Fraudulent Text Message Alerts

Posted:

As holiday shopping rises, so does the threat of Identity Theft. Recently, we became aware of a debit card phishing scheme in our name. If you have received a text on your mobile phone with a message that your debit card needs to reactivated due to a system upgrade, please ignore. The fraudulent message asks customers to call a specific phone number with their debit card information.

Bank of Tennessee will never ask you to call us with your account or debit card information – we already have it! Please be aware that identity theft is on the rise. If you ever have any question about a text message, email, or letter that you receive regarding Bank of Tennessee, please contact us only at 866.378.9500.
