When it comes to protecting your personal and financial information, we want you to know that we are here to help. There are many forms of fraud today, and for most of us it is more of a matter of "when" it happens to us rather than "if" it happens to us. See the video below for more detailed information on a specific form of targeted fraud known as Phishing.
If you are worried that you might have fallen victim to one of these methods, please see the corresponding section below on the best way to report the incident. The sooner we know what happened, the sooner we can help you!
Vishing is the act of using the telephone in an attempt to scam the user into surrendering private information that will be used for identity theft. The scammer usually pretends to be a legitimate business, and fools the victim into thinking he or she will profit.
If you think you have received a phone call from us that is suspicious in nature, please report it immediately to First National Bank & Trust. You can Contact Us here or by calling 877-803-1814.
