Romance Scams - Be wary if someone you meet online needs your bank account information to deposit money. They are most likely using your account to carry out other theft and fraud schemes. Social media and dating sites are the norm in today's day and age and scammers are present on most of these sites.
In a romance scam, the scammer intends to establish a relationship as quickly as possible, endear himself to the victim, and gain trust. To avoid meeting potential victims in person, the fraudster will say they live outside of the US. Fraudsters may propose marriage and make plans to meet in person, but that will never happen. Eventually, they will ask for money.
If you believe you have fallen victim to a romance scam, please call the bank immediately 978-365-3700.

Cybercriminals are targeting victims by sending text messages with what appear to be bank fraud alerts asking if the customer initiated an instant money transfer using digital payment applications (apps). Once the victim responds to the alert, the cybercriminal then calls from a number which appears to match the financial institution's legitimate 1-800 support number. Under the pretext of reversing the fake money transfer, victims are swindled into sending payment to bank accounts under the control of the cyber.
- Be wary of unsolicited requests to verify account information. Cyber actors can use email addresses and phone numbers which may then appear to come from a legitimate financial institution. If a call or text is received regarding possible fraud or unauthorized transfers, do not respond directly.
- If an unsolicited request to verify account information is received, contact Clinton Savings Bank at 978-365-3700 or email [email protected], not through those provided in texts or emails.
- Enable Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) for all financial accounts, and do not provide MFA codes or passwords to anyone over the phone.
- Understand Clinton Savings Bank will not ask customers to transfer funds between accounts in order to help prevent fraud.
- Be skeptical of callers that provide personally identifiable information, such as social security numbers and past addresses, as proof of their legitimacy. The proliferation of large-scale data breaches over the last decade has supplied criminals with enormous amounts of personal data, which may be used repeatedly in a variety of scams and frauds.
