Your Local Bank > About Us > Vishing Alert

Residents are receiving an automated phone call claiming their debit card has been breached. The person is instructed to enter their debit card number, PIN, and sometimes other sensitive information. This is a scam that has occurred in the New England area in the recent past. This appears to be a fairly common, run-of-the-mill vishing campaign. The fraudsters will cast a wide net, calling as many households as possible in an effort to trick as many people as possible.

Some recommendations are below:

  • Never disclose sensitive information such as account number, debit card number, SSN, or PIN over the phone.
  • Hang up and call the institution using the phone number listed on the web site or statements to inquire whether this is a legitimate call.
  • If you believe you might have revealed sensitive information, contact Middlesex Federal Savings immediately at 617 666-4700.
