Debit Card and Banking Scam Alert

Please be advised of a debit card and banking scam circulating throughout Washington state. The targeted individual will receive a phone call, most likely on their cell phone, from someone indicating that their debit card has been deactivated. The caller then asks the individual to verify their card number or provide an account number. In some cases a message is left on the individuals voicemail, asking them to call a given phone number, enter their debit card information and press 1. This is a scam. Please do not provide account information to callers claiming to be from Wheatland Bank or any other financial institution. If you receive a phone call of this nature please report the incident to your local Wheatland Bank branch immediately.
