The First State Bank has received numerous reports of fraud scams taking place in our areas. Customers have received calls stating they have won the lottery and will receive their winnings once they have given out their account information. These calls are scams attempting to acquire your personal and financial information using the telephone network. Do not respond to the call, simply hang up.
Others have encountered individuals stopping at their homes offering to "repair" things around the house. Once the work is completed their statement for services reveals outrageously high charges. Always remember to be suspicious of activity like this.
Most important, never give out your personal or account information to anyone. We strive to do our best to alert you and protect your information. However, if you have any questions, please contact our nearest branch location.
