It’s important to differentiate these texts from scam texts. If you receive a text message asking for your personal information, online banking username and password or one-time PIN, please block the number on your cell phone. You should also report it to your cell carrier. If you have AT&T, T-Mobile or Verizon, simply copy the spam message and text it to SPAM (7726). You will receive a reply from your carrier, asking you for the phone number that sent the spam message. Sandy Spring Bank will never call, text or email you and ask for your online banking username and password or one-time PIN.

You can also call our Client Service Center to verify the authenticity of a message at 800.399.5919.
