Your Security is Our Top Priority

At Farmers Bank & Capital Trust Co., we are always looking for ways to enhance communication between the Bank and our customers. As we expand our communications channels, we have some guidelines we would like to share to help protect our customers and visitors to our social networking sites.

Below are the guidelines we utilize when communicating on social networking sites:

Farmers Bank & Capital Trust Co. reserves the right to block or report any user who posts harassing, threatening, or inappropriate comments from making additional posts to the Farmers Bank & Capital Trust Co. page.

Protect yourself. When posting information or questions, or sending a message to Farmers Bank & Capital Trust Co., please do not include private information (such as your account number, Social Security number, etc.).

Farmers Bank will never ask you to verify your personal or account information via e-mail, telephone call, text message or social media posting. Do not provide any personal information (including date of birth, credit or debit card number, Social Security number or driver's license number) to anyone unless you initiated the conversation.

Comments and conversations are accepted and encouraged! We want to hear from our customers, neighbors and friends. Our social networking pages will be monitored during normal banking hours by members of the Bank's staff who will, when appropriate, contribute to the conversation.

Please watch your language. While we strive for everyone to think only the best of our institution, we understand that some visitors may wish to use the space for complaints or other issues. We ask that you refrain from using profane or off-color language; and that you keep the comments constructive in nature. Comments containing unsavory language, or which are considered inflammatory or off-topic, will be removed immediately if possible.

Protect our employees. We encourage positive comments and compliments about our employees. However, derogatory comments and complaints containing employee names or other identifying information will be removed.

Protecting Yourself from Identity Theft
Your identity is one of the most valuable things you own. It's important to keep your identity from being stolen by someone who can potentially harm your good name and financial well-being. Identity theft occurs when someone uses your name, address, Social Security Number, credit card or financial account numbers, passwords, and other personal information without your knowledge to commit fraud or other crimes. While the words may sound like a foreign language -- Phishing, Pharming, Vishing, Spyware, Dumpster Diving — they are actually techniques used by thieves to put your identity and finances at risk. And their attacks grow more frequent and sophisticated every year.

The simple fact is you can protect yourself against most forms of identity theft. The first step is education. To make it easier to understand, we've created a web page to help. Visit our "Tips To Protect Yourself" page in our Security Center
