What is Identity Theft?
Identity theft occurs when someone uses your personally identifying information, like your name, social security number, or credit card number, without your permission, to commit fraud or other crimes.
The FTC estimates that as many as nine million Americans have their identities stolen each year. In fact, you or someone you know may have experienced some form of identity theft. The crime takes many forms. Identity thieves may rent an apartment, obtain a credit card, or establish a telephone account in your name. You may not find out about the theft until you review your credit report or a credit card statement and notice charges you didn’t make—or until you’re contacted by a debt collector.
FMB will never send unsolicited emails asking our customers to provide, update, or to verify personal or account information, such as passwords, social security numbers, PINs, credit or check card numbers or other confidential information. Please contact us immediately if you receive unsolicited emails that appear to be sent from FMB.
