First Bank Phone Scam
Many people are receiving automated phone calls from “First Bank Fraud Protection” with claims that their account may be frozen due to fraud. They instruct the listener to call a 1-800 number and provide their debit card or account number and their personal identification number (PIN). First Bank has confirmed that they are not making these calls and that the scammers may also be using other financial institution names. As a reminder, you should never provide your account number, passwords, or PINs to anyone that has contacted you via automated call, email, or pop-up message. If something seems suspicious, call our First Response Team at 314.434.4141 to verify its authenticity.
