Some area residents have received suspicious phone calls or texts that appear to be from Dedham Savings. Remember that caller ID info can be faked. If you receive a suspicious call or text that appears to be from Dedham Savings, please hang up and call the Bank directly at 781-329-6700. Read on to learn more about Spoofing.
Spoofing is when a caller deliberately falsifies the information transmitted to your caller ID display to disguise their identity. Scammers often use neighbor spoofing so it appears that an incoming call is coming from a local number, or spoof a number from a company or a government agency that you may already know and trust. If you answer, they use scam scripts to try to steal your money or valuable personal information, which can be used in fraudulent activity.
If you think you’ve been the victim of a spoofing scam, you can file a complaint with the FCC.
