COVID-19 Scams: What You Need to Know

As a community bank, we take great responsibility in keeping our customers safe and informed. As the COVID-19 situation develops, there are reports that the government may soon be sending money by check or direct deposit to each of us. Though the payment plan is still in the works, the Federal Trade Commission has issued preemptive guidelines in identifying scammers who might want to take advantage of the situation.

Watch Out for these Warning Signs

  1. Upfront Pay - The government will never ask you to pay anything up front to get this money. No fees. No charges. No nothing. 
  2. Asking for Personal Information - The government will never call to ask for your Social Security number, bank account number, or credit card number. 
  3. Quick Representation - These reports of checks aren’t confirmed yet. Anyone who tells you they can get you the money now is a scammer.
If you spot any of these scammers, please notify the Federal Trade Commission. Your report will help in tracking these scammers.

If you have any questions or need help, please call our Customer Service. We are here to support you during this challenging time.
