Beware of text messages claiming that your debit card will be deactivated unless you call customer service. Phishing text messages are becoming an increasingly common method for fraudsters to gain access to confidential information. Chelsea Groton Bank will send text notifications for suspected fraud, but we will never call and request that you provide your full card number to us over the phone. For more info read our blog post “Banks Never Ask That”.
Chelsea Groton is well-positioned to continue to serve our community for generations to come. Read more from Anthony Joyce, President and CEO, on why you can feel good about banking with us.

*Chelsea Groton Bank will decline or return transactions when there is not enough money in the account to cover the charge. Accounts could have a negative balance if a transaction is initially approved for an amount lower than the actual charge (ie: after a tip is added). If the actual charge exceeds the funds in your account, but the charge was already approved, Chelsea Groton will not charge you an overdraft fee.
