At Community National Bank we pride ourselves in the extensive measures that we take to provide secure banking options. One of these measures is to inform our customers of personal security precautions that must be taken by consumers to ensure safe financial transactions.
Most cases of identity theft happen during what appears to be correspondence with a service provider but is actually identity theives working through ploys of phishing, pharming or vishing scams to obtain personal information such as social security numbers and bank account numbers to steal funds from unsuspecting victims.
The best way for us to help protect our customers is to share information about how to avoid the risks of becoming a victim of identity theft. Consumers also need to know what to do in case they discover that they have become a victim.
