How to protect your personal and business account information from fraud scams.

Unfortunately, during times of uncertainty, fraudsters often take advantage of the fears surrounding the event. The most common types of scams will target you through fake emails, text messages, calls, letters, or even someone showing up at your front door. We want to remind you that we will never call you in advance of a fraud transaction alert. We will also not ask you to provide your debit card number, your PIN or your online banking user ID or password over the phone. If you receive a call or a text message appearing to be from Cambridge Trust, but are unsure if it truly is us, please feel free to end the call and contact our Client Resource Center Monday – Friday 8:00 am – 5:30 pm at (617) 441-1444 or 844-251-0099.

By knowing what to watch out for, we can help you identify fraud events before they happen. Here are 5 easy steps you can take to help prevent fraud:
