The COVID-19 pandemic has provided an opportunity for scammers to file fraudulent claims for unemployment insurance benefits. Hackers have stolen personal information and used it to file these fake unemployment claims. The Illinois Department of Employment Security (IDES) is working with federal, state, and local authorities to combat these identity thieves. Employers and employees in our area are encouraged to be on the lookout for fraudulent unemployment claims. The IDES is asking employers to confirm that the person filing the claim actually did so and that they are an employee of your company.

The First National Bank has received word from some customers who have received texts alleging to be from FNB. These claim to be a "text alert" and requesting a registration code. The First National Bank DOES NOT send out texts requesting this type of information. When in doubt, feel free to contact your local FNB location.
