THE BANK has recently become aware of several email
scams relating to online banking. Customers of some large banks with
online banking websites have received email which looks official,
but is actually from unknown persons, asking for the customer to
browse to a particular url , and for various reasons, log-in using
their username and password. Thus, they are able to harvest these
customer's log-in information. No breach of the customer's accounts
have been detected, however. THE BANK would like to make our customers
aware that we will never send you email asking for your username
and password, or ask you to log-in to a website. If you receive any
email of this nature, please do not do as the email requests, and
notify us immediately.
BANK's online banking website is up and running, and we are very
excited to be able to offer this service to our customers.
You will be able to check balances of your accounts, view current
and previous account statements, view check images, and make transfers
between accounts all at one convenient, secure, user-friendly website.
