Some Farmers Bank customers are receiving automated phone calls from a source identifying itself as Visa. The phone call states that “Your Debit/Credit card has been blocked”. The customer is then prompted to “Press 1” to re-activate their card. The customer is then instructed to key in their 16 digit card number. At this point the card has become compromised. If you have given out your debit card number in this fashion, please call the bank immediately. We will NEED to “BLOCK” your card.
As a reminder, never give your card number or any other bank information to any phone or internet inquiry. The Farmers Bank of Willards will never use these formats to inquire on your accounts.
