FFNB warns customers of text message scam

First & Farmers National Bank is advising customers this morning that they been alerted by several customers of a scam where the customer has received a text allegedly from First & Farmers National Bank stating that a large withdrawal was made from their account and to respond to dispute it. Clicking the link takes the recipient to a web page that is visually similar to the First & Farmers National Bank login page.

First & Farmers National Bank says "These messages are fraudulent. Any customer who receives such a message needs to delete and do not respond. Remember: NEVER give out your account information, passwords, or social security numbers, unless you have initiated a call to a known number for the bank. We will NEVER text, call, or email asking you to provide this information."

It's good practice to never log in to important sites from links in emails or text messages.
