Ridgewood will never call or email you soliciting personal information

At Ridgewood Savings Bank we care about our customers and take customer security very seriously. While we do monitor activity for customer security, and may call to verify certain account activity, we will NEVER ask you for personal information such as: whole social security numbers, passwords, or whole account numbers via telephone or e-mail. We advise anyone that receives a suspicious phone call or e-mail to contact the bank directly.

Please use precautions when handling any types of unsolicited or unexpected telephone calls or emails. Be suspicious of emails, even if they appear to originate from a trusted source. Clicking on links in spam email may send users to phishing web sites or sites that are hosting malware.

Report a suspicious email:

  • If you think you’ve received a suspicious email claiming to be from Ridgewood Savings Bank forward it to abuse@ridgewoodbank.com so we can investigate it for you.
  • If you doubt the validity of a Ridgewood Savings Bank telephone call or email that you received or if you think you may have already responded to a phishing scam, please contact your branch immediately.
