Debit Card Fraudulent Phone Calls

October 4, 2013

MUNCIE, Ind. - Be aware that criminals have been making phone calls to customers and non-customers claiming to be First Merchants Bank regarding their FMB Debit Card. The caller, which may be a computer automated call, identifies themselves as a representative of First Merchants Bank and is calling to tell the customer that there is an issue with their debit card and proceeds to ask for the debit card number and expiration date. 

This is a fraudulent call and you should hang up. First Merchants will not make unsolicited phone calls asking for your confidential information (in this case the debit card number and expiration date).
