PlainsCapital Bank is monitoring the situation and reviewing our customers’ debit card activity for fraudulent transactions.

PlainsCapital Bank Receives Reports of Phishing Calls
PlainsCapital Bank has received reports of phishing calls and texts purporting to be from PlainsCapital Bank and requesting debit card information.
PlainsCapital Bank will never text, call, or email a customer asking for information such as account number and/or Personal Identification Number (PIN). These calls have been received by both PlainsCapital Bank customers and non-customers in a specific area code and are part of a nationwide fraud scam affecting financial institutions across the country. The scammers are using the bank’s name to phish for information.
Should a customer receive a call that you suspect may be fraudulent, they should disregard and immediately report the incident to firstname.lastname@example.org or the nearest PlainsCapital Bank branch.
