Fraud Watch

Check Fraud continues to grow at an alarming rate. Before presenting a check at one of our branches or through mobile deposit, learn to recognize the red flags and protect yourself from scams.

Questions to Ask Yourself:

  • Do you have any reason to suspect that this check may be fraudulent?
  • Do you know the sender?
  • Were you expecting this check?
  • Does this request invoke a sense of urgency?


Red Flags

  • This check is from a mystery shopping program.
  • This check is payment for something you sold online.
  • You were instructed to return a portion of the check proceeds to the sender or a third party.
  • The offer seems too good to be true.


If you have any doubts about the validity of your check, please contact us immediately. You may be held liable for the funds if the check is returned.
