Beware of the Latest Scam

Posted Thursday, 23 October 2014 12:08 | Filed under C&N News

Citizens & Northern Bank will NEVER ask you for your personal information.

Some C&N customers have received an e-mail purporting to be from Citizens Bank. Although the e-mail is “branded” with the Citizens Bank logo, some of our customers may believe it was from C&N. This is not the case. The e-mail indicates that the customer’s access to Internet Banking has been locked out due to multiple failed login attempts. The e-mail continues, “Citizens Bank monitors and records ‘failed login’ attempts in order to detect suspicious activities (i.e. someone trying to guess your challenge verification question answer or password).

“Please click here to unlock your Internet Banking access by validating your login credentials.”

This e-mail was not from Citizens & Northern Bank. Should you ever be locked out of your C&N Internet Banking account, please call, toll-free, 1-877-838-2517. NEVER respond to e-mails of this type. C&N has your personal information and would never ask you to verify information online. Entering such information online poses a substantial security risk for your accounts. Please contact us if you have any further questions or concerns.
