The email claiming to be from First United Bank & Trust and instructing you to renew your account information appears to be a phishing scam. Phishing e-mails are e-mails from scam artists who use official looking webpages designed to trick you into believing they are from a corporate website that you have an account with. Once you are at the site, they will ask you to provide or verify personal information such as bank account information, credit card information, social security information and password information. If you get such an e-mail, you should delete it and do not provide any of the requested information. However, if you are not convinced that you have a fraudulent e-mail, please contact First United Bank & Trust directly and explain the e-mail you received. If you give out any personal information, contact First United Bank & Trust immediately and depending on what information you gave out, it may be wise to take measures to protect against identity theft (e.g. contact credit agencies, close accounts, cleanse computer). Many e-mail solicitations that appear to be phishing e-mails are set forth throughout this website and below:
