Scams Can Happen - Learn to Spot Them

5 Simple Ways to Spot an Email Scam

1. The Domain Does Not Match up - Check who the email is from - the email domain (which is in bold below) is a dead giveaway if it is a scam, for example if you were to receive an email from Pine Country Bank it would be from an email like; info@pinecountrybank.com

2. Your full name is not used - When you open an email if it begins with "Dear user, Dear customer, etc." you should be a little suspicious. Most legitimate emails will be personally addressed to you using your full name.

3. A request for personal information to be sent via email - If a legitimate business needs you to update any kind of personal information this is almost always done on the business's website. A potential scam is if the email you receive asks you to respond to the email with any kind of personal information.

4. Poor grammar and spelling - This is one of the easiest to spot, if you open an email and it is very poorly written (spelling mistakes, grammatical errors, etc.) this is a a strong indicator that it is not from a legitimate source.

5. Requires immediate action - If you receive an email urging you to take immediate action, be wary. Call the business at their direct business line to confirm if the email was a scam or not.

There are a number of other ways you can protect yourself from email scams, but these are a few that will help you spot a scam much quicker!



Chris Schulte to Serve on the Board of Directors

As a small business owner, I understand the importance of having a bank you can rely on and look forward to bringing my knowledge of the local community to Pine Country Bank. I believe in businesses that support the local economy so I am proud to serve on the board of an organization that is so community-focused.



Saving Money During Summer Vacation

Summer is the time for vacations, but how do you go about saving money during this time of year?

Here are some simple tips and tricks for saving money even when you are planning a vacation:

1. Get a credit card with rewards - the more you use it responsibly the more you get back

2. Have money automatically transferred to your savings account regularly - Example: every pay day take "x" percentage and put it into savings

3. Plan ahead, if you need cash for your vacation, stop by your local bank first to avoid ATM fees

4. Take advantage of coupons - many local newspapers and inserts include gas coupons to help you save on that upcoming road trip

5. Find free activities - during the summer months there are tons of free things to do such as planning a beach day at the local lake or taking a bike ride with the family
