Phishing ( E-Mail Scams)

Phishing USA Patriot Act Privacy Policy Computer Security Identity Theft Kit

Internet “Phishing” or e-mail scams: “Phishing” refers to someone appearing to be someone they are not while trying to obtain private information from you. The criminal will send an e-mail that generally will instruct you that the entity sending the e-mail needs to update some records and that you should enter the information or login to a site to confirm your information is correct.

The Web site to which you are directed may look exactly like an authentic Web site but is located somewhere other than the legitimate Web site. A good rule of thumb to follow is to always type in the Web site address you intend to go to when you are logging into a site that contains your private information or any site that you utilize a login name and password to access.

Main Street Bank will never ask you for any nonpublic personal information by e-mail. Examples of nonpublic private information include; PIN numbers, account numbers, passwords, social security numbers, etc. Even if the e-mail looks like it has been sent from Main Street Bank please do not respond with information or click on a link that takes you to a site that then requests nonpublic personal information from you. Please report any e-mails that reference Main Street Bank that you believe are “phishing” e-mails to Main Street Bank at 304.232.2001 Ext 123 or send us an e-mail.
