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.
Our secure treasury management solutions are designed to help businesses improve collections, investments and disbursement of funds. But the best part about our tools is the team that stands behind them. Our Cash Management team is ready to meet, share strategic advice, set-up and train you on all services, at your place of business or virtually.
While working with the Bank’s commercial lending department, we were introduced to the Cash Management team who listened intently to our needs. Within days they proposed cash management tools that would be beneficial to us. They literally climbed behind my desk to install the check reader for me, talk about service!
