Please be aware of e-mails circulating the Internet contain various Subject lines, such as “Your ACH transfer” or “Your Direct Deposit declining” and a link, which may launch a computer virus or an Internet connection to a phishing website.
As a policy, Mars National Bank does not request account or personal information via any medium, such as telephone, e-mail, or text messaging. For your protection, do not reply and do not provide any information.
NACHA (the Electronic Payments Association) makes the following statement regarding communications:
“NACHA has been the victim of sustained and evolving phishing attacks in which consumers and businesses are receiving emails that appear to come from NACHA. The attacks are occurring with greater frequency and increased sophistication.
NACHA itself does not process nor touch the ACH transactions that flow to and from organizations and financial institutions. NACHA does not send communications to persons or organizations about individual ACH transactions that they originate or receive.”
