On behalf of Carroll County Trust Company:
Fraud is becoming more and more prevalent. Recently, we have had customers receive calls that appear to come from the bank. Scammers can alter what appears on your telephone caller ID to make it seem like they are with the bank, IRS, or a government agency. We will never call you asking for account information. If you receive a call like this, tell the person you will call them back and call the bank immediately. Scam artists specialize in being deceptive and fooling people so don’t feel embarrassed if they do trick you. If you give them your account information call the bank immediately. We offer ID protection at no additional charge to our customers with consumer checking accounts. If you have any questions regarding this please call us at 660-542-2050 or 660-565-2212. We urge everyone to be extra cautious and think twice before answering suspicious phone calls, emails or letters.
