ATMA message from Savings Institute Bank & Trust:

We believe an ATM skimming device was placed on the Savings Institute Bank & Trust Moosup, CT and Canterbury, CT ATMs on Saturday, January 14. An ATM skimming device allows fraudsters to capture ATM card numbers and PINs. The fraudsters use this information to make fraudulent transactions.

If you have used either the Moosup or Canterbury ATMs on or after January 14th, please review your account activity immediately. If you find fraudulent activity please call (866) 842-5208 to report the activity. You can use Online or Mobile Banking to turn off your Debit Card.
