Fraudulent Shazam Call- Posted 12/15/12

December 15 ,2012 - It has been reported to us that some customers are receiving a fraudulent automated phone call from Shazam stating that their debit card has been blocked. The automated phone call will then ask you to enter personal information. This appears to be a scam or phishing attempt. If you receive one of these phone calls, please do not enter any personal informaiton and contact the bank immediately. If Shazam is going to contact you about your debit card, a person will be calling you and not an automated caller.
