Telephone & Text Message Scam Alert
Kish Bank has been made aware of a telephone and text message scam that targets Kish Bank customers in an attempt to trick them into providing personal information.
The calls appear to be from Kish's toll-free number (1-800-981-5474) and the text messages are from 423-375-9002; both the calls and the text messages claim to be from the Kish Bank fraud department. The caller/texter “alerts” customers of a $500 person-to-person (P2P) payment (see example, right) and asks for personal identifying information or their digital banking login credentials.
Please be advised that this call or text is intended to steal your personal information—do not provide any information to the caller or texter. Kish Bank is NOT the source of these phone calls or text messages and will never call or text to ask you to disclose personal information.
If you received such a call or text and have disclosed personal identifying information or your digital banking login credentials, please contact us immediately by calling your local branch or the Kish Bank Client Solutions Center at 1-800-981-5474.
