Be On the Look Out for Scammers!!

Hello everyone, it’s your favorite financial pig, Penny!

Every year, thousands of people lose money to telephone scams, from a few dollars to their life savings! Scammers will say anything to cheat people out of money. Some seem very friendly, calling you by your first name, making small talk, and asking about your family. They may claim to work for a company you trust, or they may send mail or place ads to convince you to call them. So we here at FNBOB wanted to help inform our customers, and others, of the potential threats out there and ways to protect yourself before these groups put you on their radars!

With this new digital age, it is becoming so much easier for these scammers to get information to help them fool you! Between phone calls, text messages, to social media, emails and regular mail, there are a number of ways for them to trick you into doing something you really didn’t or wouldn’t want to do! Below are a couple of different attachments for you to click to educate yourself to be able to prevent these attacks.

We can only stress to be absolutely careful and sure when giving your personal information, credit card or bank account numbers to anyone! Be safe out there everyone!
