An article in the Greenfield Recorder warns of a phone scam targeting local residents. The caller ID is being "spoofed" so that the calls appear to come from the Franklin County Sheriff's office or the District Court number, and the caller claims to be serving a warrant. These calls are a scam.
If you receive one of these calls, please remember not to share any personal information including credit card numbers, bank account numbers, or Social Security numbers no matter what the caller may threaten.
If you're concerned about the legitimacy of a call, just hang up and call the Sheriff's Office or District Court directly using their regularly published telephone numbers. An employee will be happy to help verify whether such a warrant exists.

We've been notified of a debit card scam circulating in our area that uses text messaging in an attempt to trick cardholders in to revealing their card number and security information.
The recipient will receive a text stating that their debit card has been deactivated and that they need to call an (844) toll-free number or click a particular web link to reactivate it. The "reactivation" process requests the caller's card number, expiration date, security (CVV) code, and more.
If you receive a text like this, please disregard & delete the message. It is not from Greenfield Savings Bank; we do not use text messaging for this type of notification, and will never ask you to provide your secure account information over the telephone or online.
If you believe your account or card may have already been affected by this scam, please contact Greenfield Savings Bank immediately to deactivate your card. You can receive a new one instantly at any GSB office during normal business hours.
