Bank Scam Reported

Are you a cus­tomer of Farm­ers and Mer­chants State Bank? If so, you should be on the alert for a poten­tial scam, in which bank cus­tomers have been get­ting auto­mated phone calls, in which they are told that their debit or credit card accounts have been locked. The cus­tomer is then asked for per­sonal account infor­ma­tion.

Accord­ing to the Bryan Times, the folks at Farm­ers and Mer­chants Bank say the calls are becom­ing more fre­quent.

The bank also says the calls are a scam, but they stress that that there has not been a data breach of any kind.

If you get one of those calls, you should just hang up, and then call the author­i­ties to report it. Do not give out any infor­ma­tion. Bank pol­icy pro­hibits them from call­ing and ask­ing for that infor­ma­tion over the phone.
