SMS Phishing Scams

We’re seeing an influx of phishing scams—fraudulent messages pretending to be Community Bank in order to gain access to your banking account and information, as well as scammers calling from numbers spoofed to look like the Bank’s. These text message try to impersonate CBNA and get the recipient to click on a link, which redirects them to fraudulent website that looks similar to CBNA's online banking login.

Please review the following tips to prevent these types of attacks:

  • Never click on a link in an unverified text to check your account.
    • Only send electronic payments to people you know and can independently verify. If you feel pressured to send funds quickly, consider this suspicious.
    • Access CBNA online banking through our mobile app or via our website at: cbna.com
    • You can change your username and/or password in online banking by clicking on your profile picture then select settings>security. While in the security section, make sure you setup 2-step verification for enhanced security.
    • If you respond to a suspicious alert text, you may receive a call phone from an individual impersonating a CBNA employee. Additional caution should be taken and do not provide any sensitive information if this does occurs.

    Below are some examples of the fraudulent text messages pretending to be Community Bank in order to gain your information. The sender, link and message can vary and may look similar to this:
