Fake email messages sent to you for the purpose of stealing personal and financial information (phishing) are among the most common types of email fraud. Disguised as legitimate email and claiming to be from sources you trust, these messages attempt to entice you to provide various types of personal and confidential information, such as online ID's and passcodes, Social Security numbers, and bank account numbers.

Peoples National Bank of Kewanee would like to remind our customers and non-customers that we will NEVER send any email requesting sensitive information. If you receive an unsolicited email that looks like it is from us and is requesting confidential information, please let us know immediately.
