Phishing is an attempt to gain access to your account by tricking you into providing your personal information. These attempts are often made by automated phone call or e-mail message stating that you are being contacted on behalf of your bank. No legitimate financial institution would ever ask you to provide your personal identification codes. If you receive such requests, do not provide the information and please report the contact to your bank immediately. Needham Bank does not employ any automated calling services, and our customer service representatives will have any financial and personal information they need to identify you, and help you with your account.
