Safeguarding your money

Your money at First Federal Bank is FDIC insured. And the FDIC insures up to $250,000 per depositor – so you know your money is safe.

Unfortunately, in these times, threats (outside of your bank) rise. The FBI has issued a warning that scams may increase during this time. Here's some advice and tips to keep your money safe:

Here are things to watch out for according to the FBI:

  • Offers selling treatments, vaccines, and equipment, as well as virus tracking apps or virus-related information and more.
  • Charitable requests to donate to an online charity or through social media – including contributing to a crowdfunding campaign.
  • Emails claiming to be from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) or other health organizations and asking you to click on attachments you do not recognize - these could contain malware that attempts to steal your personal information or locks your computer and demands payment.
  • Offers for counterfeit equipment or treatment - you can find more information on unapproved or counterfeit equipment at www.cdc.gov/niosh. You can also find information on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration website, and the Environmental Protection Agency website.
  • Any offer or charitable request that you do not recognize that asks you for personal information.

To safeguard yourself from these threats, the FBI advises that you:

  • Do not open attachments or click links within emails from senders you don't recognize.
  • Do not provide your username, password, date of birth, social security number, financial data, or other personal information in response to an email or robocall.
  • Always verify the web address of legitimate websites and manually type them into your browser.
  • Check for misspellings or wrong domains within a link (for example, an address that should end in a ".gov" ends in .com" instead).
