Beware of Phishing Attempts!

What is Phishing? Phishing is an attempt by a thief or criminal to obtain personal or financial information such as User IDs, Passwords, Debit or Credit Card numbers, or other information by posing as a legitimate company or business.  Common types of phishing attempts are those that occur via email requesting users to enter personal or financial information in what appears to be a legitimate website, such as your credit card company or bank.  Phishing attempts can also come via text message or phone call.

First Bank of Manhattan will never contact you for your personal or financial information including social security number or account number via phone or email.   We do not contact our customers through an automated or recorded calling system.  First Bank of Manhattan has monitoring systems in place that can detect or identify suspicious transactions and we may contact you to verify transaction activity.  However, we will never ask you for your debit card number, your PIN, your expiration date or 3-digit code on the back of your card.  If you ever suspect that a call regarding your First Bank of Manhattan accounts or products is not legitimate, please contact us directly at 815-478-4611.

We have renamed our New Lenox branch office "FIRST BANK OF NEW LENOX, a Branch of First Bank of Manhattan."

We made this change to more accurately reflect our commitment to, 
and our position as a proud member of the New Lenox community.
