Text Message Scam
Bank of Oak Ridge is experiencing an increase in reports of text messages being sent to consumers fraudulently claiming to be from Bank of Oak Ridge. These text messages advise recipients that their debit cards have been deactivated and are coupled with a phone number to call to have the victim enter their card number. The senders of these messages are conducting a text-phishing scam, attempting to trick recipients into providing sensitive financial information.
As a reminder, Bank of Oak Ridge will never ask for personal information in a text message or an email. If you receive a message like this, please do not respond to it and report it to us at BKOR-IB@bankofoakridge.com. If you believe you have provided personal or account information in response to a fraudulent text or email, please contact Client Connect at 336-644-9944.
We apologize for the inconvenience that has been caused by the conductor of this fraud scam. The Bank of Oak Ridge remains committed to keeping your financial information secure. We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you for years to come.
