Know Your Bank

Many scam artists will call, email, or mail requesting you to input personal information while claiming to be from a financial institution, credit card service, etc. Your best defense against these types of frauds is to know the practices of the business or financial institution that is calling you. Any communication out of the ordinary should send up a red flag of suspician.

If you have any question as to whether a person communicating with you by phone or email is from Blackhawk, take the person's name and call them back at Blackhawk Bank & Trust's main number (309) 787-4451.
