Fraud Alerts in the Greater Rochester Community

Updated November 2021

Be on the alert for fraud when using ATMs

ESL members: Never let anyone that you do not know make a transaction into or from your account, and never loan or give out your ATM/Debit card, PIN, and Online Banking login credentials.

We have seen increased activity around a scam that has fraudsters approaching people using ATMs and asking them to deposit checks into their accounts at the ATM. These checks are fraudulent or will bounce.

If you deposit one of these checks into your account, you are responsible for all of the money withdrawn from your account. Please don’t be a victim of fraud or an accomplice to this activity!

If you are approached by a potential fraudster, please contact local authorities. If you see suspicious activity on your account, please call our Fraud Team directly at 585.336.1140.
