Torrington Savings Bank has received notification that Torrington Savings’ name and telephone number are showing up on caller ID’s but the caller is NOT Torrington Savings Bank. The callers have varied with such requests as asking information about their bank accounts, and one individual stated the caller was an automated recording.
Caller ID spoofing is the practice of causing the telephone network to indicate to the receiver of a call that the originator of the call is a station other than the true originating station. For example, a caller ID display might display a phone number different from that of the telephone from which the call was placed. The term is commonly used to describe situations in which the motivation is considered malicious by the originator.
If you have any question about the legitimacy of a call from Torrington Savings Bank, please hang up and dial our Main Office at (860) 496-2152 or (800) 232-9581. Thank you for your diligence.
