Attention Online Banking Customers!


11/16/2018 - We have been made aware of a phishing campaign trying to get your Internet Banking credentials. The messages are coming from an e-mail address similar to: ?@bankfirstfed.com.


THIS IS NOT FROM FIRST FEDERAL. DO NOT give out any personal information through any email or text alert.


First Federal will never ask for your personal information via email or text message. If you have given out personal information, it is important that you change your Internet Banking password immediately.




We have received information that there is a phone call campaign going on in the area right now, attempting to get people to refinance their mortgages. The attackers are using CallerID spoofing to make it look like these calls are coming from actual First Federal phone/cell numbers of our loan staff. FIRST FEDERAL WILL NOT CALL YOU AND ASK TO REFINANCE YOUR LOANS!

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PROCEDURES FOR OPENING A NEW ACCOUNT

To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account.


What this means for you: When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver's license or other identifying documents.
