October saw a fraud attack on Taos County residents. Text and automated voice messages were sent to area code 575 mobile and home phone numbers from a 914 area code seeking information from you. Centinel Bank information was not hacked-- they used numbers in the 575 area code and our good name and reputation in an effort to get you to VOLUNTEER information about yourself to them. DO NOT RESPOND! The only way they can get information about you is if you give it to them. IF YOU HAVE RESPONDED, CONTACT YOUR FINANCIAL INSTITUTION IMMEDIATLEY. Never give out personal information (social security number, driver's license number, bank account information) to someone calling or texting or emailing TO YOU. If you are suspicious of any activity, always hang-up/delete and contact the legitimate business from a number or address you know is valid.
Centinel Bank welcomes local painter Lorrie Bortner as our new Featured Artist. Stop by the main lobby to view 16 of her colorful paintings through November.
