Phishing, or hoax emails that appear to be from reputable companies are becoming more common. These emails usually ask you to click a link to the company's website to provide or update your personal information. However, not all phishing emails ask for information, but instead download logging software or viruses on your computer when you click the link. Some signs that an email may be a phishing email are: the message seems to require immediate attention; links look legitimate since they contain all or part of real company's website, or the email has spelling errors (these help the emails avoid spam filters). You can report phishing scams by forwarding the email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by forwarding the email to the Federal Trade Commission at email@example.com.
It is the policy of Today's Bank to never email customers to verify or request any personal information. If you think you may have been a victim of phishing on your Today's Bank account please contact us immediately at (479) 582-0700 or (479) 738-2147.
For more information on avoiding phishing scams read, "How Not to Get Hooked by Phishing Scam" (http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer/alerts/alt127.shtm).
