CURRENT SECURITY ALERTS
Caller ID Spoofing
Please be aware of spoofing scams in which a caller intentionally falsifies or disguises a caller ID to appear as someone they are not. Scammers may act or say they are with a legitimate organization, including as a representative of a financial institution, to get you to respond with personal information they can then use to engage in fraudulent activity such as stealing your identity or money.
First National Bank will never call, email or text you to request personal information such as Personal Identification Numbers (PIN numbers) or passwords. For additional information, visit https://www.fcc.gov/consumers/guides/spoofing-and-caller-id.
Use caution at all times and never answer calls from unknown numbers, respond to questions or provide personal information of any kind. If you suspect the call might be a spoofing scam, hang up immediately and call the company or government agency the caller claimed to represent to verify the authenticity of the call/request.
OCC Warns of Unauthorized Bank
The OCC has issued an alert that an entity using the name of First National Bank and purporting to be located at 222 S 9th Street, Minneapolis, Minn. 55402 is misrepresenting itself as a national bank. First National Bank purports to be a financial institution offering business banking services. This entity is not a licensed or chartered bank. Businesses have reported receiving fictitious letters and faxes offering uncollateralized revolving lines of credit, secured loans, and long-term loans.
