First Mountain Bank Customers Reminded to Keep Information Private

Big Bear, Ca July 13, 2011 2:00 pm – First Mountain Bank has alerted KBHR that their customers are, once again, receiving fraudulent phone calls, generated by scam artists claiming to be making contact on behalf of the bank.  Those called have reportedly been asked to provide account numbers and pin codes to reactivate their ATM and debit cards.  A similar series of bank scam calls took place in the Big Bear Valley last August, and prior to that in April and June 2010, and in April 2009. These automated scam phone calls may ask for a debit card number or password.  Big Bear residents are reminded never to give out that information over the phone.   As Richard Miller, Compliance and Information Security Officer for First Mountain Bank, advises Kbear,  “No bank should call, email or anything else to verify your information, because they already have that info.  Never give a password or pin number to anyone, especially on the phone.”  If you are a banking customer of First Mountain Bank and have inadvertently shared any pertinent information, you are advised to contact the bank, either by visiting one of their four branches or by calling (909) 866-5861.
