Recent Scams

Special Notice Regarding "Email Marketing Scam" - April 5, 2011

We have been notified regarding a breach at a major email marketing firm that exposed names and email addresses for customers of some of the nation’s largest banks and corporate brand names.  While the marketing firm didn’t name the clients that had customer data lost in the breach, this marketing firm sends over 40 billion emails annually and counts over 2,500 clients, including 7 of the Fortune 10 to build and host their customer databases.  While online banking is very safe, we just wanted to re-enforce that you should be careful about giving out your personal financial information over the Internet.

Special Notice Regarding "Grandson Scam" - August 31, 2010

There have been a couple of cases where someone reaches out to an elderly couple pretending to be their "Grandson" stating he is in trouble and asking for money. This could be a scam, the "Grandson" never says who he is or agrees when a name is mentioned.  They ask for money to be wired or transferred because they are in trouble and are out of the country.

We would just like to remind you of telephone scams and to always ask questions and verify identity, etc.
