Thankful. Grateful.
These words are especially popular this time of year, frequently appearing on a home’s front door, surrounded by pumpkins and mums.  When I see them, I am reminded of the approaching holiday season, which is a time to celebrate and give thanks for our family, friends and any other invaluable relationship that is a positive constant in this time of change and uncertainty.

While 2020 has been overwhelming to many, I think 2020 has proven to be a year where relationships were built for a common purpose, and where teams were created for the sake of a desired goal.

I see instances of this around me while working with a dedicated team of South Shore Bank employees and executives who are doing whatever is needed to support the community throughout the year.  This overwhelming support and commitment to the community was evident through the worst days of the pandemic as we tirelessly worked to support small business and keep our clients safe.

I am thankful to our clients who have, in turn, supported us by changing their behaviors to keep our employees safe.

I am grateful to work for a company so committed to community and to the Shared Success of our personal and business clients.

This month’s newsletter will provide a glimpse of a few of the things South Shore Bank is doing within the communities where we live and work.  And may just leave us all feeling thankful and grateful…
Six Common Scams to Watch Out For and How to Stay Safe

The amount of fraud being directed at consumer banking customers has become quite alarming!  Fraudsters are driven, more than ever, to place bank clients in harm's way using a multiple number of scams.  Please be aware this is happening more frequently than you’d like to think.  If you receive a check from someone you do not know and they ask you to deposit it and send money back, be suspicious!  If you befriend someone on social media and they start to ask about finances and sending money back and forth, be suspicious!  If someone is pressuring you to send money, quickly, via wire transfer, be suspicious!  These are just a few examples.  Please click “READ MORE” to view a Cyber-Tip Newsletter with information on common scams.  As always, if you have any questions, or are in a situation that you find unusual, please reach out to one of our experienced team members in our Customer Information Center.  Remember, if something seems too good to be true, it typically is.
