Alert: Text & Email Message Scam

We have received reports that text and email messages are being sent claiming to be from Jewett City Savings Bank.  These messages were not sent by the bank.  Do not respond to the message, call any telephone number provided, or click on any website link provided.

Here is an example of the text message:

“JEWETT CITY SAVINGS BANK ALERT: Your CARD has been DEACTIVATED. Please contact us at 860-556-4887”

Cyber criminals are using email messages (phishing) and text messages (SMiShing) to attempt to get consumers to divulge account numbers, debit and credit card numbers, and other personal confidential information.  Never respond to the message or use the telephone number or website link provided.  When there is a question about your account information, you should always contact the bank at a telephone number or website that you know to be legitimate (from a statement or receipt).

If you called the number included in the text or email message and provided your debit card number, IMMEDIATELY call a branch office near you for assistance during business hours.  After business hours, notify our HOT CARD Lost & Stolen Service at 1-800-264-5578.

If you received a text or email message, you can also file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission at www.FTCcomplaintassistant.gov.
