Online Safety

There are many scams going on to try to take advantage of unsuspecting people. These scams may be generated via telephone, email, text messages or even computer pop-ups. In nearly every case it's important to remember: DO NOT SHARE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION with anyone unless you are completely sure of their identity. NEVER allow a buyer, renter, job offer or anyone else pressure you into taking immediate action. Always know who you are conducting business with and never agree to schemes involving overpayment. Alliant Bank will not email, generate an online pop up, text you or call you to request your personal or financial information.
