The old adage that "if it's too good to be true it probably is" applies today more than ever. There has been a proliferation of scams to defraud people of their money, identity, or both. Criminals use the mail service, phones, and increasingly the internet, to perpetrate a wide variety of fraud. To help you become more informed and better prepared, we are providing you with some information to help you protect your financial and personal information.
Security Reminder: We will never ask you for sensitive information in an unsolicited communication (such as an email, phone call, or text message), including:
- Social Security number
- account numbers
- online banking ID/password
Also, we will not ask you to verify sensitive personal or account information on our website, except as part of enrollment for a product or service.
Keeping your sensitive information safe and secure is our top priority. If you receive an unsolicited communication from Tri Counties Bank that asks you for sensitive personal information, or links you to a website that asks for sensitive personal information, please email us at email@example.com or contact your banker.
