Fraud Prevention


Hang up and call the Bank Directly:

If someone claims to be from Bank of the Flint Hills or any other institution, don't hesitate to ask for their name and a call-back number.

If the call seems suspicious hang up and verify the information through official channels, such as their official website or a statement.

Use Secure Communication Channels:

Be cautious about sharing personal information over email or text messages, as these are not always secure.

Watch for Red Flags:

Be wary of unsolicited calls or messages asking for personal or financial information.

Look out for grammatical errors or inconsistencies in the communication, as legitimate institutions usually maintain a high level of professionalism.

Keep Personal Information Private:

Avoid sharing sensitive information, such as passwords or PINs, with anyone, even if they claim to be from a trusted organization.

Be cautious about sharing personal details on social media platforms, as this information can be used by fraudsters.

Regularly Monitor Your Accounts:

Regularly review your bank statements and transaction history to identify any unauthorized or suspicious activity.

Set up alerts to receive notifications for certain types of transactions, such as large withdrawals or international transactions.

Use Strong Passwords:

Ensure that your online banking passwords are strong and unique. Avoid using easily guessable information, such as birthdays or common words.

Educate Yourself:

Stay informed about common scams and fraud tactics to recognize and avoid potential threats.
