FALCON scores transactions based on transaction date and the cardholder’s profile factors. A Shazam Fraud Specialist will call you if any suspicious activity is detected on your account. They will identify themselves as Shazam, calling on behalf of Sherwood Community Bank. If they are unable to reach you, a message will be left with their contact information. They will never ask for any personal information like account numbers, social security number or PIN/passwords.
