Tips to Avoid Becoming a Victim of Identity Theft
Internet Phishing Scam
Internet scammers casting about for people's financial information have a new way to lure unsuspecting victims: They go "phishing." Phishing is a high-tech scam that deceives you into disclosing your credit card numbers, bank account information, Social Security numbers, passwords, and other sensitive information.
Phishing begins with an unsolicited, but official looking e-mail that may, for example, tell you that you need to "update" or "validate" your account information to keep your account active. The e-mail will include a link to a web site that looks exactly like the web site of a legitimate business, further tricking you into thinking it is a valid request. Unknowingly, you may submit your financial information - not to the legitimate business—but to scammers, who use it to order goods and services and obtain credit.
At Bank of Yazoo, we're aware of such scams, and because your privacy and account security are important to us, you should know that we do not send any e-mail that requests your personal account information or asks for your password or PIN number.
NOTICE OF CHANGES IN TEMPORARY FDIC INSURANCE COVERAGE FOR TRANSACTION ACCOUNTS
All funds in a "noninterest-bearing transaction account" are insured in full by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation from December 31, 2010, through December 31, 2012. This temporary unlimited coverage is in addition to, and separate from, the coverage of at least $250,000 available to depositors under the FDIC's general deposit insurance rules.
The term "noninterest-bearing transaction account" includes a traditional checking account or demand deposit account on which the insured depository institution pays no interest. It also includes Interest on Lawyers Trust Accounts ("IOLTAs"). It does not include other accounts, such as traditional checking or demand deposit accounts that may earn interest, NOW accounts, and money-market deposit accounts.
