Farmers State Bank maintains strict standards of security to protect the information of our customers. Our customer information and account data is protected by several state-of-the-art safety features: firewalls, data encryption and password verification.
Helpful tips to keep your online and email information secure:
Phishing occurs when customers receive a fraudulent email request for personal information, often in regards to verifying account numbers, personal identification numbers (PIN), social security numbers, passwords, or other sensitive information.
The fraudulent email will typically resemble a familiar company's internet site and logos, while asking for customers to go to a provided internet site address or click on a link to update or confirm their information.
Such internet site addresses or links are typically similar to the actual company's internet address; however, will often have a couple of letters transposed.
Farmers State Bank will never ask for you to verify an account number, password, or social security number within an email.
We encourage you to use caution when applying for items via email. In order to safeguard yourself, be sure to check that the web address we may provide you in an email is accurate.
