There have been automated calls going out to people around the area designed to steal bank information. The calls claim to be from 1st Source bank but the bank posted this message on their Facebook page about the scam.

"We’ve been made aware of random automated calls being generated throughout the area saying, "Your 1st Source debit card is locked, press 1 to unlock." The caller then asks you to input your debit card number and PIN. This is a scam – these calls are not from 1st Source Bank.

If you are a client and have given your debit card information, please call us at (800) 513-2360 or stop by a banking center and we will cancel the card and issue a new one.

Everyone, please remember, scammers are out there. Never provide personal account information to someone who calls, texts, or e-mails you asking for it – no matter how likely the story."
