We have been made aware of a fraudulent person(s) posing to be from a North Dakota financial institution. The individual(s) place phone calls to the public and claim to be from a legitimate financial institution. Their goal is to obtain personal financial information from the persons called. These calls are fraudulent, likely part of an identity theft scheme. As a reminder, you should never give out personal financial information over the phone or online unless you are confident that you are dealing with a reputable party. A reputable bank, credit union, or non-depository financial institution will never contact you and request this type of information.
