Fraud Alerts

Fraudulent Phone Calls - June/July 2014

Customers have recently reported receiving calls from someone claiming to be from The Bank of Fayetteville. The caller ID identifies the call as being from The Bank of Fayetteville; however, the call is fraudulent. The call is a recording about interest rates and the call is phishing for information from the customer. The Bank of Fayetteville does not initiate calls pertaining to interest rates and we will never call to ask you for your debit card number, SSN, DOB, or any other sensitive information.

Customers who have been affected by the breach have been notified via letter. We are continuing to monitor the situation. Please click here for more information.

Heartbleed Bug - April 2014

Preliminary assessment indicates The Bank of Fayetteville's web-facing systems unaffected.

"Heartbleed," is a recently discovered and very serious bug found in OpenSSL--encryption used in many websites to protect sensitive data such as emails, passwords or credit card data. Protecting your personal and financial information is our top priority and there is no indication that any of our web-based systems are at risk. We are working with our critical business partners to ensure their systems are secure as well.

What You Can Do

An easy way to analyze the security of a website is to use the free Qualys® SSL Labs SSL Server Test. Simply enter a domain name and this tool will respond with an F grade if the Heartbleed vulnerability is present.

If you are using any websites known or suspected to be vulnerable to Heartbleed, please monitor your related accounts for suspicious activity. After the vulnerable website is patched, make sure to change your password for the accounts. If you change your password before the patch, your new password will still be at risk.

If your financial institution hosts Internet banking or other SSL-enabled Web servers, please evaluate your systems for the Heartbleed vulnerability, remediate it and replace SSL certificates as soon as possible.

Harbor Freight – Feb 2014

The Bank of Fayetteville has been notified of a network intrusion that has put Visa debit and credit account numbers at risk. The unauthorized access took place in Harbor Freight Tools' stores in the United States between May 6, 2013 and June 30, 2013.

The reported incident involves confirmed unauthorized access to Harbor Freight Tools' transaction processing system, which exposed customer information that included customer names, credit and debit card numbers, card expiration dates, and the three-digit security codes (CVV/CVC codes) located on the magnetic stripe on the card.

Please monitor your account closely, and if you discover fraudulent activity on your current Bank of Fayetteville debit card, please contact the bank at (479) 444-4444. We will then follow our normal procedure in processing the fraudulent activity.

Target – December 2013

On December 19th, Target Corporation disclosed that over 40 million credit or debit card accounts may have been compromised between November 27th and December 15th.

According to a notice on Target's website, the stolen data includes customer names, credit and debit card numbers, card expiration dates, and the three-digit security codes (CVV/CVC codes) located on the magnetic stripe of the cards. This information allows the fraudsters to produce a counterfeit card to be used for card-present, swiped transactions. The data breach did not affect online purchases. The PINs are also not at risk.
