Beware of Fraudulent E-Mails

Sometimes consumers receive e-mails that appear to be from a legitimate financial institution. The link in these e-mails appears to be the website of a financial institution, but it is in fact a phony site. This phony website will ask you for personal information. If you provide the information, thieves can have access to your bank accounts, credit cards or even steal your identity.

Please be aware that First County Bank will:
• Never ask you to share personal information other than through secure areas of our website
• Never ask you for your PIN, account numbers, social security number or any other personal information through e-mail

For more information on “phishing” and how to protect yourself against identity theft, please visit the website of the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC).

If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact the CustomerFirst Contact Center at 203.462.4400.
