FRAUD ALERT: Be wary of payment requests via email

Don’t let fraud ruin your holidays

Criminals are targeting business email accounts to steal contact information and company-branded signature blocks. They use the information to create convincing emails (whether they be legitimate email accounts of victims, spoofed emails, or look-a-like domains) to target accounts payable and/or human resources employees. The scammers will often send falsified invoices or request payments be redirected to illegitimate accounts.

Visit our Security Info and Fraud Alert page to learn more about how you can protect your accounts from scammers. If you suspect you’ve fallen victim to fraud, notify First National immediately and file a detailed complaint through the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center.
