Phishing and spoofing emails look like official bank emails and try to trick you into visiting a fake website and providing your personal account information. In some cases they duplicate the bank's web page to make their request appear official. These emails may also ask you to call a phone number and provide account information.
SMShing is phishing that happens via SMS text message. A criminal sends you a text message that tries to trick you into replying with financial or personal information or clicking on links that will sneak viruses onto your mobile device. Don’t respond to a text message that requests personal or financial information. First National Bank in Carlyle will never ask you to provide your information in this way.
NEVER GIVE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION TO ANYONE THAT REQUIRES IT TO BE DONE BY PHONE, EMAIL OR TEXT MESSAGE UNLESS YOU INITIATE THE CALL AND ARE CERTAIN YOU KNOW TO WHOM YOU'RE GIVING THE INFORMATION.
THE BANK WILL NEVER REQUEST YOUR INFORMATION BY PHONE, EMAIL OR TEXT MESSAGE.
