Phone Number Spoofing Alert
We have recently been made aware of phone number spoofing attempts using at least two of our branch phone numbers. "Spoofing" occurs when a caller deliberately falsifies the information transmitted to your caller ID display to disguise their identity. Spoofing is often used as part of an attempt to trick someone into giving away valuable personal information so it can be used in fraudulent activity or sold illegally.
In the spoofing calls that have been brought to our attention, the fraudulent caller looked as if they were calling from a legitimate Kish Bank phone number and the customer’s caller ID listed the caller as “Kish Bank.” The customer was asked if they could be interviewed in an attempt to save them money on their credit card.
Kish Bank is NOT the source of these phone calls and will never call to ask you to disclose account information over the phone. If you receive such a call, hang up immediately and contact Kish Bank Service Support at 1-800-981-5474.
