We have been made aware of customers receiving phone calls in which the caller claims to be from Community First Bank’s Fraud Department. CFB does have a Fraud Center that will contact you if there is potential fraud on your card, and we will never ask for specific personal or account information (including account numbers, names and passwords).
“If someone sends you money and asks you to send it to someone else, STOP. You could be what some people call a money mule – someone scammers use to transfer and launder stolen money.”
We have been made aware of customers receiving automated phone calls in which the caller claims to be from Community First Bank to review accounts and talk about COVID assistance.

If you have any questions or concerns, or feel you may have given out personal information to someone not associated with CFB, please call your local branch directly.
