Hoosier Heartland State Bank NEVER sends e-mails requesting personal information. We will never ask you to “verify” information. We will never ask you to click on a special site link to do so.

- Look. Read the text of the e-mail several times and ask yourself why the information requested would really be needed. Do not be intimidated by an e-mail. Do not rely on the name or address in the “From” field, as this is easily altered.

- Act. If you fall victim to an attack, act immediately. Alert your financial institution. Monitor your credit files and account statements closely. Report the theft of your personal identification to the three major credit reporting agencies:
