The Finance Career & Leadership Academy is a free instructional program designed to not only provide advanced personal finance and employment readiness training, but also a path to career opportunities in banking for high school juniors and seniors within our communities. The Academy runs from February into June. The most promising and top performing students from the Academy are considered for VNB’s College Program (the Business/Staff Development Program).

The College Program is a bank-sponsored, comprehensive, free training program that consists of 15 courses of which 13 are accredited college/university courses (38 credit hours that are transferable to a 2 or 4-year college/university) and work projects. Participants receive fulltime pay with full fringe benefits (includes 401k with company match) while completing the program and, if successful in the program, have the potential opportunity for a career with VNB. Also, once employed, should they choose, they may go on to complete a 2 or 4-year degree at the company’s expense.

Cloning Scams: The Dark Side of Artificial Intelligence

Posted in Business Banking, Community News, Consumer Banking

Virginia National Bank (VNB) cares about the welfare of our clients, which is why we say, “It’s all about people...and always will be.” While technology continues to progress in remarkable ways, we must remember to stay vigilant. Criminals often use advanced technology for scams. The Federal Trade Commission is warning consumers about fraudsters using artificial intelligence (AI) to clone voices of friends, family, and loved ones. Cloning voices is easily accomplished using videos from social media and it does not require much more than a tiny snippet. Criminals are also able to spoof phone numbers. If you receive a call from a friend or loved one telling you to send them money, think twice before sending. When in doubt, it is advisable to hang up and call them back directly.

The more you know, the safer you’ll be:

  • While digital payment applications are an effective and quick way to send funds, you should only use digital payment applications to send funds to people you know and can verify their identity.
  • VNB will never ask you to send payments anywhere.
  • If you are asked to purchase gift cards or wire money, STOP. Ask yourself, “why do they need gift cards” or “is this person really who they say they are.”
  • If a deal is too good to be true, it may be fraud. Do your due diligence before purchasing or sending a digital payment. Always know who you are buying from or selling to.
  • VNB will never ask you for your Personal Identification Number (PIN) or security codes.

If you are concerned with potential fraud, please reach out to our Client Care Center at 877.817.8621 or contact us here.

We want to ensure the utmost of security for our clients by reminding them that criminals use advanced technology including AI. Be safe. Be vigilant.
