Scammers are calling Century Bank customers indicating that they are from Century Bank Security.
During these calls the scammers ask customer for their Debit Card Pin, or their Secure Access code for Online banking, or their user ID and password for online banking.
Please note that Century Bank will NEVER call you, and ask for any of these things (we already know all of them except the Secure Access Code).
If you receive a call like this, stop, don’t give the scammer any personal information. Hang up, then call us at 505.9951200 and let us know.
What are some classic warning sights of possible fraud and scams?
- Calling or emailing you, claiming to be from the government and asking you to pay money.
- Asking you to pay money or taxes upfront to receive a prize or gift
- Asking you to wire them money, send money by courier, or put money on a prepaid card or gift card and send it to them.
- Asking for access to your money-such as your ATM cards, bank accounts, credit cards, or investment accounts.
- Pressuring you to "act now" or else the deal will go away. Or someone who seems to be trying hard to give you a "great deal" without time to answer your questions.
