Banking customers should be aware of a phishing scam contacting people by phone in the area.

Several Farmers Bank of Milton customers received calls that their debit card has been deactivated, the bank's executive vice president David Hertz said. The computer-generated call asks customers to reactivate their card by pressing "1," and entering personal banking information.

Hertz warns not to give any personal information, such as card numbers, account numbers, pin number or social security numbers, over the phone.

If customers receive this phishing scam call, notify Hertz at (502) 268-5256.
