Phishers targeting bank customers

Internet thieves are currently sending counterfeit e-mail messages designed to look like they are from First National Bank Alaska. Phishing e-mails often include urgent requests for personal financial information and appear to be sent by the bank.

First National was alerted to the scam today. Phishers usually run their scams for at least a few days and up to a month or longer.

What to do:
First National Bank Alaska is NOT sending e-mail messages asking
customers to verify account information. First National never solicits customer information via e-mail, nor does it conduct customer authentification via e-mail. If you receive an e-mail that could be phishing, DO NOT RESPOND to the solicitations nor click on any links within the email.

Call the bank at 777-4FNB (4362) in Anchorage/Eagle River or toll free at 1-800856-4362 to report suspected fraud involving First National accounts.
