Important Information Regarding Messaging Scams
Farmers Bank & Trust wants to let you know there is always potential for messaging scams being sent to our customers and non customers. We want to remind you that we will never send you a text message beyond text alerts that you have set up within online banking. Do not click on suspicious links within messages from Farmers Bank & Trust or any other financial institutions. Most importantly, never disclose account or personal information in a non-secure or text message setting. If you received a text and clicked the link, and subsequently entered your account information, please change your internet banking password immediately.
