Phone Scam Regarding Visa Debit Cards: We have received notification that Home City Federal customers are receiving phone calls telling them that their Visa® debit card has been locked. This call is a scam and in no way related to Home City Federal.
The automated call tells recipients their Visa® debit card has been locked. The call then says to “press 1 to unlock the card.” After the number 1 is pressed, the automated system asks for card information, such as the card number, PIN or cvc code. Please do not disclose your card number or account/personal information during such a call. This is a phishing/scam phone call. Home City Federal will never call customers and request this information.
