Some customers have reported receiving text message alerts, stating that their debit card has been "blocked" and that they need to reply to the text message with their full debit card number. This is a phishing attempt and you should never enter your card information or any other private personal information into a text message or email.

Please know that First United will never ask you for confidential or private information through text, email or social media channels. If you are ever unsure about a communication from the Bank, please contact our Customer Care Center directly at 1-888-692-2654.
