Attention Business Customers: Please be aware of recent phishing scams! Criminals are currently targeting small businesses because they typically have fewer technology resources and less formal protocols in place. Every time you or your employees receive an email request to transfer funds electronically to a 3rd party, you should call the person sending you the instructions using a known telephone number. Sending funds based on email correspondence alone is a risk you should not be willing to take. In most cases, by the time your employee realizes the instructions were fraudulent, the money is gone.
