Potential Scam Alert: Don't give out personal info over the phone.

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. These calls are fraudulent, and we have reported the scam to our local police department. Please note, we will never ask for specific account information over the phone (including numbers, names and passwords). 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.
