Tip to help you outsmart fraudsters!
Fraudsters can make a call, email, or text look like it’s coming from FNB. Be suspicious of communications asking for sensitive information.
Don’t provide personal information and call us directly .
Enroll in push notifications, enable 2factor authentication, and ensure FNB has your up-to-date contact information. Attentive account monitoring is a great way to detect fraud.
Does an online deal look too good to be true? Is the seller insisting on immediate payment or an unusual payment method? Those are red flags.
Be proactive, protect your financial information, and research the seller before making a purchase.
If you receive a request from a friend, family member, or someone you met online for money always contact them directly using a different method.
Beat imposter scammers by trusting your gut, and only send money to those you know and trust.
Scammers can use urgency to put you at risk of making sensitive decisions quickly.
Take the time to think through the request and consider whether the call/email/text is real
