First Security Bank's Commitment to Security

Each year more and more Americans have their identity stolen and the staff and management of First Security Bank want to give you the information you need to help protect yourself against ID theft.

While we cannot guarantee that your ID will never be stolen we will NEVER request personal information by email or text messaging including account numbers, passwords, personal identification information or any other confidential customer information.

Fraudulent emails may be designed to appear as though they are originated by First Security Bank. Do not respond to any email communications which request any type of personal or confidential information and do not go to any links listed on that email.

These communications are not originated by First Security Bank. Never give out any information that the Bank already has to a caller, texter, or email sender. If you contact us we may verify the last 4 digits of your SSN to confirm your identity but we will never contact you and ask for your debit/credit card number or your full SSN. If we need to contact you, it will always be done in a manner that protects your personal, confidential information and we will clearly identify ourselves. One of First Security Bankís top priorities is to safeguard YOUR confidential information and we work diligently to do so.

We always work with the local regulatory and law enforcement departments to be certain any type of illegal activity is stopped as soon as possible. We have multi-layer security to protect your confidential information and will continue to be vigilant in protecting it.

Immediately report any suspicious emails or websites to First Security Bank to our customer service call center. If you suspect identity theft or have any questions regarding this notice, please contact us at .

What is Identity Theft?

Identity theft involves the unlawful acquisition and use of someone's identifying information, such as:

  • Name
  • Address

Thieves then use the information to repeatedly commit fraud in an attempt to duplicate your identity which may include opening new accounts, purchasing automobiles, applying for loans, credit cards, and social security benefits, renting apartments and establishing services with utility and telephone companies. It can have a negative effect on your credit and create a serious financial hassle for you.

Debit Card Protection

Debit card usage has increased dramatically in recent years and fraudulent use of debit cards has also increased.

We at First Security Bank have some suggestions for you for the care and usage of debit cards.

  • NEVER give your debit card information when requested by phone, email, or texting. We at First Security Bank will never request information from you in this manner. Please contact us if you receive any such request.
  • It is a good idea to pay by credit card if your card leaves your sight. An example might be when a waiter takes your card from your table in a restaurant or when ordering online. Debit cards are easier to process illegally vs. credit cards
