There is a new debit card scam across the country! Phone calls with automated voice messages are informing individuals their debit card has been locked. The message then instructs them to press 1 to reactivate their card and asks them to enter their debit card number and PIN. DO NOT ENTER THIS INFORMATION! THIS IS A FRAUDULENT CALL. Platinum Bank will never send a pre-recorded message to inform our customers of debit card fraud. For information/questions, please contact us at 806.792.5300.
