Fraud Alert

Caller ID Spoofing

We have recently been made aware of FSB phone number spoofing attempts.  Spoofing occurs when a caller deliberately falsifies the information transmitted to your caller ID display to disguise their identity.  In this spoofing, the fraudulent caller looked as if they were calling from First State Bank and the customer’s caller ID listed the caller as “First State Bank” or had an employee’s name listed.

First State Bank is NOT the source of these phone calls and will never call to ask you to disclose account information over the phone.  If you receive such a call, hang up immediately and contact us at 601-735-3124 or 1-866-408-3582.
