Financial Safety Tips

Beware of Phishing Scams
Scam artists try to scare people out of their money. As a general rule, never give information about your bank account, credit cards or Social Security Number to anyone you do not know and trust. Watch out for "special" investment opportunities that are suspicious. If you receive a questionable call, request the person's name, address and telephone number, and notify your bank or local police department as soon as possible.

Remember that Middleburg Bank will never ask you to provide confidential account information.  If you receive a suspicious email or call:

Keep Good Records
Keep records of all banking transactions. In addition to bank statements and transaction receipts, include paper copies of deposits, investments, ATM withdrawals, credit card payments, mortgage payments, car loan payments and the like. Should an error occur, these records will help you and your bank quickly resolve the problem.

Check and Double-Check
Check your bank transaction receipts against your monthly statements. If there's a discrepancy, contact Middleburg Bank immediately.

Know Your Limit
Make sure your deposit accounts are structured according to FDIC guidelines for maximum insurance protection ­ good advice any time of the year. Remember that the FDIC insures each type of account ownership up to $250,000, so it's possible to have $1 million or more in insured funds at the same bank.

Be Cautious with Cash
Use care about how much money you keep on hand. Don't withdraw so much cash that you put yourself at risk of being robbed or losing valuable interest you could be earning.

Don't Panic
If you feel like you have to act in a hurry, consult trusted friends and reliable financial advisors for help in examining your financial situation calmly and reasonably.

Seek Information
If you have any concerns, contact your local branch office.
