BE ON ALERT OF FRAUDULENT CALLS OR TEXTS!
First National Bank recently became aware that a fraudulent call was made to a customer from someone stating that they were calling on behalf of First National Bank to inform them that they had been entered into a drawing to win $10,000.00. They were also told that they were eligible right now to receive 5 free subscriptions to magazines.
The customer was very concerned because the call was coming from San Pedro, California. When the customer tried to call the number back numerous different times it just rang busy. The caller did not ask for any personal information, account number or social security number, but the call was very suspicious.
A second situation was brought to the attention of First National Bank in regard to a text message received. The text message included some numbers and said there was a MasterCard issue and had a phone number to call back. When calling this number the recording stated that the card had been "limited" and then instructed the caller to enter their 16 digit card number.
Customers should NEVER give out their card number or personal information over the phone unless they initiate the call. If you believe your information has been compromised by a fraudster you should immediately contact the bank by phone at 419-384-3221. If you have any questions or concerns about fraud, please contact First National Bank directly.
