Recently, there has been an alarming increase in financial scams locally and across the country. One of the most common scams is when the fraudster makes a call or sends a text message posing as the “Fraud Department” of a financial institution. It may even appear as a relationship you recognize or with which you have an account. Don’t take the bait! Banks will not text or call you to ask for your personal or online banking credentials! At Farmers State Bank, the privacy of our customers is top priority. We will never ask you for this type of information via text or over the phone. If you receive any type of communication where you are being asked for personal identifiable information, please follow these tips attached.
