Protect your private information from Internet, e-mail scams.
At JGB Bank, your privacy is very important to us. We want to inform you about a new scam on the Internet called “phishing” a technique used by hackers to lure online consumers to fraudulent websites via e-mail. The e-mail appears to be sent from a bank or bank regulators. The message in the e-mail often warns consumers that their account will be closed if their information is not updated or “verified” and directs consumers to a link. That link opens a form asking for bank account information such as routing numbers, account numbers, and PIN numbers.
JGB Bank does not send or request confidential information through e-mail. You should never enter private, personal information on a form sent to you by e-mail. We take the privacy and security of your financial information very seriously.
Here are a few ways to protect yourself from Internet and e-mail fraud:
If you receive e-mail requesting information about your JGB Bank account, do not click any links or submit any information requested. Please contact your local branch and report the suspicious e-mail.
