BE AWARE OF SCAMS!Dec 16, 2019
A few of our customers have brought to our attention that they have received a text message stating their debit card is locked. The text then provides a number to call. When the phone number is called, it is a recording stating that your debit card is locked and they will unlock it if you press 1. When 1 is pressed it then states to type in your debit card number. THIS IS A SCAM!
As the holidays sneak up on us, scams do to! Be cautious when receiving texts and emails regarding your banking. Please keep in mind that if the financial institution is not confirmed in the texts or email, that is a red flag! Another red flag is being asked for your full card number, account number, or other personal information such as your social security number. A bank will never ask you to disclose full numbers via text, telephone or email- they will only ask you to verify the last 4 digits for security purposes.
PLEASE, be extra cautious and if you are unsure, NEVER hesitate to reach out to us directly. If you have received this text, you should delete it. If you have acted on this text, please contact customer service immediately at 978-283-8200.

Fraud Alert Text MessagingDec 11, 2019
If you received a text message from BankGloucester, IT IS LEGITIMATE!
As a benefit of our new debit
card services, we can now provide you with fraud detection services through
text alerts. Keeping your card safe is as easy as sending a text. This convenient
service allows you to instantly keep tabs on suspicious activity. You will
simply be able to reply to a text message that indicates potential fraud on
your debit card and acknowledge whether it is legitimate or not. If the transaction
is fraudulent and you reply that it is, you will then receive another text
message with a phone number to call for further assistance. If not, you will
mark the transaction as legitimate and you can get on with your day - as
simple as that!
This is an optional service. If you would like to opt out you can reply "stop" to the text you may have received.
If you have any questions or need to verify or update your mobile number, please call customer service at 978-283-8200.

Phishing - Don't take the bait!Mar 8, 2019
Phishing is when you get emails, texts or calls that seem to be from companies or people you know. But they're actually from scammers. They want you to click on the link or give personal information (like password) so that they can steal your money or identity, and maybe get access to your computer.
Scammers use familiar company names or pretend to be someone you know. They ask you to click on a link or give passwords or bank account numbers. If you click on the link, they can install programs that lock you out of your computer and can steal your personal information.
They pressure you to act now - or something bad will happen.
