The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) has received numerous reports from consumers who received an e-mail that has the appearance of being sent from the FDIC. The e-mail informs the recipient that “in cooperation with the Department of Homeland Security, federal, state and local governments…” the FDIC has withdrawn deposit insurance from the recipient’s account “due to account activity that violates the Patriot Act.” It further states deposit insurance will remain suspended until identity and account information can be verified using a system called “IDVerify.” If consumers go to the link provided in the e-mail, it is suspected they will be asked for personal or confidential information, or malicious software may be loaded onto the recipient’s computer.
This e-mail is fraudulent. It was not sent by the FDIC. It is an attempt to obtain personal information from consumers. Financial institutions and consumers should NOT access the link provided within the body of the e-mail and should NOT under any circumstances provide any personal information through this media.
The FDIC is attempting to identify the source of the e-mails and disrupt the transmission. Until this is achieved, consumers are asked to report any similar attempts to obtain this information to the FDIC by sending information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For your reference, FDIC Special Alerts may be accessed from the FDIC’s website. To learn how to automatically receive FDIC Special Alerts through e-mail, please visit the FDIC’s website.

Eligible Items – You agree to image and deposit only “checks” as that term is defined in Federal Regulation CC (“Reg CC). When the images of the front and back of the check are transmitted to the Bank, they are individually or collectively converted to an electronic image for subsequent presentment and collection. It shall therefore be deemed an “item” within the meaning of Articles 3 and 4 of the Uniform Commercial Code.
You agree that you will not image and deposit any of the following types of checks or other items which shall be considered ineligible items:
Endorsements and Procedures – Electronic Images shall be deemed received by Bank for deposit based upon time of receipt as well as successful receipt of Electronic Images that are complete, usable, and adhere to the standards discussed herein. If any Electronic Image is not complete, is not usable, or does not adhere to the standards, the Electronic Image may not be processed by Bank, in which even your deposit will be adjusted and notification provided. The daily cut-off time for RDC deposits is 2:00p.m. CST. Such daily cut-off times may be adjusted by Bank in its sole discretion from time to time upon notice to you. If the deposits are not received by the end-of-day cutoff time, Bank will not guarantee that deposits will be processed that day. Bank may accept these deposits and they will be processed on Bank’s next Business Day. Bank shall give provisional credit for deposits subject to revocation of credit for deposits as provided in Regulation CC and the Uniform Commercial Code. The availability of funds for deposits via the Services is set forth in this Agreement. All checks submitted through the Services must be properly endorsed by you prior to transmittal.

You agree to follow any and all other procedures and instructions for use of this Service as the Bank may establish from time to time. Any loss that Bank incurs from a delay or processing error resulting from an irregular endorsement or other markings by you will be your responsibility. Bank has no responsibility or liability for any fees incurred due to the rejection of transmitted items for missing/incomplete endorsements.
Receipt of Items – In general, all images processed for deposit through the Services will be treated as “deposits” under your current Deposit Account Terms and Conditions with Bank. Any confirmation from Bank that we have received the image does not mean that the image contains no errors. Bank is not responsible for any image it does not receive. The Bank reserves the right to reject any item transmitted through this Service, at the Bank’s discretion and without liability. The Bank is not responsible for items the Bank does not receive or for images that are dropped during transmission. The Bank further reserves the right to charge back to Customer’s account at any time any item that the Bank subsequently determine was not an eligible item. You agree that the Bank is not liable for any loss, costs, or fees you may incur as a result of a chargeback of an ineligible item. Following receipt, Bank may process the image by preparing a “substitute check” or clearing the item as an image.
Availability of Funds – You agree that items transmitted using this Service are not subject to the funds availability requirements of Federal Reserve Board Regulation CC for an “electronic” deposit. Generally, and except as otherwise provided herein, items transmitted using this Service will be available subject to the Bank’s approval. If you make a deposit using this Service before 2:00p.m.CST, on a business day that the Bank is open, the Bank will consider that day to be the day of your deposit. However, if you make a deposit using this Service after 2:00p.m.CST, or on a day that we are not open, the Bank will consider that deposit to have been made on the next business day that the Bank is open. You acknowledge that all credits given by the Bank for an item are provisional, subject to verification and final settlement. The Bank shall have no liability for the return or refusal of any item.
The Bank may also delay in making funds available due to the following circumstances:
The Bank will notify you if there is any type of delay in your ability to withdraw funds for any of these or other reasons, and the Bank will attempt to tell you when the funds will be available.
Retention and Security of Original Checks – Upon your receipt of a confirmation from the Bank that the Bank has received an image that you have transmitted, you agree to retain the check in safekeeping in a secure environment for at least sixty (60) calendar days from the date of the image transmission. After sixty (60) days, you agree to destroy the check that you transmitted as an image, mark it “VOID” or otherwise render it incapable of further transmission, deposit, or presentment. Image quality is reviewed by the Bank after submission; however, if the receiving bank does not accept the image, you may be required to present the original check for payment. During the time the retained check is available, you agree to promptly provide it to the Bank upon request. The Bank assumes no liability for losses you may incur if the receiving bank does not accept your image and you are unable or unwilling to present the original check for payment. You agree that you will never re-present the original check. You understand that you are responsible if anyone is asked to make a payment based on an original check that has already been paid.
Deposit Limits – The Bank has established a limit of $5,000.00 and up to (10) items per day that you may make via the Services.

Daily and monthly deposit limits may vary for users of other services provided by the Bank.
Presentment – The manner in which the items are cleared, presented for payment, and collected shall be in the Banks sole discretion, subject to the Deposit Terms and Conditions or other agreements governing your account.
Errors – You agree to notify the Bank of any suspected errors regarding items deposited through this Service right away, and in no event later than sixty (60) days after the applicable Bank account statement is sent. Unless you notify the Bank within sixty (60) days, such statement regarding all deposits made through this Service shall be deemed correct, and you are prohibited from bringing a claim against the Bank for such alleged error.
Errors in Transmission – By using this Service you accept the risk that an item may be intercepted or misdirected during transmission. The Bank bears no liability to you or others for any such interception or misdirected items or information disclosed through such errors.
Returned Deposits – Any credit to your account for checks deposited using the Services is provisional. If original checks deposited through Services are dishonored, rejected or otherwise returned unpaid by the drawee bank, or any rejected or returned by a clearing agent or collecting bank, for any reason, including, but not limited to, issues relating to the quality of the image, you agree that an original check will not be returned to you, but that Bank may charge back the amount of the original check and provide you with an image of the original check, a paper reproduction of the original check or a substitute check. You will reimburse Bank for all loss, cost damage or expenses caused by or relating to the processing of the returned item. Without Bank’s approval, you shall not attempt to deposit or otherwise negotiate an original check if it has been charged back to you.
Image Quality – Each image must provide all information on the front and back of the original check at the time presented to you by the drawer, including, but not limited to, information about the drawer and the paying bank that is preprinted on the original check, MICR information, signature(s), any required identification written on the front of the original check and any endorsements applied to the bank of the original check. The image of an item transmitted to the Bank using this Service must be legible, as determined in the sole discretion of the Bank. Without limiting the foregoing, the image quality of the items must comply with the requirements established under Reg. CC and otherwise from time to time by the Bank, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve Board, or any other regulatory agency, clearinghouse or association.

An online service transaction initiated prior to three (3) PM (Central Time) on a business day is posted to your account the same business day. All transfers and stop payments
completed after three (3) PM (Central Time), or on a non-business day, will be posted the following business day.
We may, from time to time, offer and introduce new services to Online Banking. We will notify you of the existence of these new products and services. By using these services when they become available, you agree to be bound by the terms contained in this Agreement, any attachments and subsequent amendments.
Security & Protecting Your Account
We are strongly committed to protecting the security and confidentiality of your account information. We use several techniques to help secure Online Banking, including the following:
In addition to using a secure web browser or supported device specific application, you must have a Login ID, a password and maintain one or more of the following eligible accounts at the Bank: checking account, savings account, time deposit account, or loan. If you transfer money (withdraw funds) using a Money Market or Savings account, please refer to the fee schedule and transaction limitations on the account agreement or call the Bank for further information. Any account that has not had customer activity within the last year (dormant) or has been restricted for death, lost checks, garnishment, or levy is not eligible for transfers. Online Banking log in
information may be deleted from our systems for non-use if the log in and password have not been used for a period of six (6) months.
Online Banking Password
Your password will give you access to your accounts through Online Banking. The Bank is entitled to act on any instructions it receives using your password. For security purposes, it is recommended that you memorize your password and do not write it down. We also recommend that you change your password regularly to try to avoid misappropriation by a third party. You can change your password while on our Online Banking System. The Online Banking system will require you to change your password every 90 days. You shall be responsible for the confidentiality and use of your password(s) and other security data, methods and devices in accessing and using Online Banking. You are responsible for keeping your password and account data confidential. When you give someone your password, you are authorizing that
person to use Online Banking and other online services. We will therefore consider any access to Online Banking through use of valid security credentials to be duly authorized by you, and we will carry out any instruction given regardless of the identity of the individual who is actually operating the system. You are responsible for all transactions performed using your password, even if you did not intend or authorize them. In addition, fraudulent transactions initiated using your password will be charged against your account(s). If you believe that your password may have been lost or stolen, notify us at once at 1-432-756-3361 or email email@example.com.
Statements/Unauthorized Transactions in Your Accounts
All of your payments and funds transfers will appear on your monthly account statement(s). You must promptly examine your statements upon receipt. If you find that your records and ours disagree, you must immediately call us at 1-432-756-3361. Also notify us if someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission, or if you suspect any fraudulent activity on your account. Only reveal your account number to a legitimate entity for a purpose you authorize (such as your insurance company for automatic payments). To notify us, call 1-432-756-3361 or write to us at First National Bank of Stanton, Attn: Bookkeeping
Department – Electronic Banking, P.O. Box 10, Stanton, Texas 79782.
The Bank is not responsible for any electronic virus that you may encounter using the online services. You confirm that you have investigated our Online Security Procedures and that you have instituted the proper controls for access to Online Banking through your computers, mobile devices and terminals. You confirm that the security system and controls are commercially reasonable for your business and appropriate for your personal accounts. You agree that you are responsible for the performance and protection of any browser or operating system used in connection with Online Banking, including the prompt adoption of all security patches, installing
and keeping up to date any malicious code security (“anti-virus”) and other security measures issued or recommended from time to time by the suppliers of such software. We encourage you to scan your computer, mobile devices and removable storage routinely using a reliable virus protection product to detect and remove viruses. If undetected and unrepaired, a virus can corrupt and destroy your programs, files, and hardware.
Electronic Mail (E-mail)
Sending e-mail is a good way to communicate with the Bank regarding your accounts or the online services. However, e-mail sent via your own software may not be secure. You should not include confidential information, such as account numbers and balances in any e-mail to the Bank. You cannot use e-mail to initiate online service transactions. All such transactions must be initiated using the appropriate functions within Online Banking. The Bank will not be liable for any errors, omissions, claims, or problems of any kind involving your e-mail.
We are not responsible for any loss, damage, or injury related to or caused by any use, misuse, or failure of your equipment. Neither are we responsible for any loss, damage, nor injury related to or caused by any deficiency, malfunction, or failure of your software, hardware, or internet connection.
EFTA and Regulation E Disclosures
Some of the accounts to which you have access through Online Banking may be governed by the Electronic Funds Transfer Act (EFTA) and Regulation E. In general, the EFTA and Regulation E govern accounts established by a natural person primarily for personal, family, or household purposes. The following terms and disclosures apply to accounts governed by the EFTA and Regulation E (“EFTA Accounts”), and, with respect to EFTA Accounts, if there is any conflict between these disclosures and terms set forth elsewhere in this Agreement, these disclosures shall control. These disclosures do not apply to accounts that are not EFTA Accounts. If your password has been compromised and you tell us within two (2) business days after you learn of the loss or theft, you can lose no more than $50.00 if someone used your password without your permission to access your account. If you do NOT tell us within two (2) business days after you learn of the loss or theft, and we could have stopped someone from taking money without your permission had you told us, you could lose as much as $500.00. In addition, if your statement shows withdrawals, transfers or purchases that you did not make or authorize, please notify us immediately. If you do not notify us within sixty (60) days after the statement is first sent or made available to you, and we could have stopped someone from taking money if you had told us in time, you may not get back any money lost after the sixty (60) days. If extenuating circumstances, such as a long trip or hospital stay, kept you from telling us about these circumstances, the times in this section may be extended. You are fully obligated to us to provide sufficient funds for any payments or transfers you make or authorize to be made. If we complete a payment or transfer that you make or authorize and we subsequently learn that you have insufficient funds for the transaction, you agree that we may reverse the transaction or offset the shortage with funds from any other deposit account(s) you have with us to the extent permissible by the applicable law and the terms of any other relevant agreements.
Limitation of Damages and Liability
Except as specifically provided for in this agreement or where the law requires a different standard, you agree that the Bank is not responsible for any losses, errors, injuries, expenses, claims, attorney’s fees, interest or other damages, whether direct, indirect, special, punitive, incidental or consequential, (collectively, “losses”) caused by your use of online banking or the use of online banking or in any way arising out of the installation, use or maintenance of your personal computer hardware or software, including any software provided by the Bank or one of its suppliers. In addition, the Bank disclaims any responsibility for any electronic virus(s) you
may encounter after installation of such software or use of Online Banking or the online services. Without limiting the foregoing, neither the Bank nor its suppliers shall be liable for any: (i) failure to perform or any losses arising out of an event or condition beyond their reasonable control, including but not limited to communications breakdown or interruption, acts of God or labor disputes; or (ii) the loss, confidentiality or security of any data while in transit via the internet, communication lines, postal system or ACH network.

You may not gain, or attempt to gain, access to any Online Banking and/or other online services server, network or data not specifically permitted to you by the Bank or its suppliers, and you must not include any obscene, libelous, scandalous or defamatory content in any communications with the Bank or its suppliers.
