Phishing Alert: We have been notified of a recent scam in which customers are being sent an email asking to update their personal information via a link that will take the user to a fraudulant site.
Take these precautions to protect your information:
Be extremely cautious when providing personal information such as Social Security number or account or credit card information over the telephone, in person or over the Internet. Don't give out information unless you are sure with whom you are dealing.
Notify your bank of suspicious phone inquiries such as those asking for account information to "verify a statement" or "award a prize."
