‘Tis the Season for Scams

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.” This holiday season, we want you to remember to be vigilant.

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.Scrooge
  • VNB will never ask you to send payments anywhere.
  • If you are asked to purchase gift cards, STOP. Ask yourself, “why do they need gift cards” or “do I know this person.”
  • 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.
  • VNB will never request your bank account information and your personal information once your account is opened.

Bah hum bug! Do you think you might be a victim of fraud? 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 the holiday season is one that criminals use to their advantage. Be safe. Be vigilant. Above all else, have a wonderful and joyous holiday season!

Best wishes,
Virginia National Bank
