Phishing Alert – Be Smart. Be Suspicious.

In unrelated phishing scams, the IRS and Target are asking the general public to be vigilant in protecting their private information.  Read more to learn more about how you can protect your identify and your accounts.

IRS WARNS OF NATIONWIDE PHONE SCAM
The IRS today warned consumers about a sophisticated phone scam targeting taxpayers throughout the country. Victims are told they owe money to the IRS and that it must be paid promptly through a wire transfer or a pre-loaded debit card. The Scammers may be able to recite the last four digits of a victim’s Social Security Number. Telephone caller ID will appear that it is the IRS calling.  The IRS does not telephone taxpayers to request private information and will never ask for PINs, passwords or confidential access to credit cards, bank or other accounts. If you’ve been targeted by this scam, you should report the incident to the Treasurey Inspector General for Tax Administration at 800.366.4484. You should also contact the Federal Trade Commission and use their FTC Complaint Assistance at FTC.gov. Please add “IRS Telephone Scam” to the comments of your complaint.

TARGET DATA BREACH AND YOUR VULNERABILITY
Victims of the Target data breach are vulnerable to phishing attacks now. Remember: 

1. Banks do not ask for account numbers and other sensitive personal information by email.  If you have responded to a suspicious email, contact your bank immediately so it can help protect your account and your identity.

2. Never give our your personal or financial information in response to an unsolicited phone call, fax or email, no matter how official it may seem. Do not respond to emails that request such information or that threaten you.

3. Check your credit card and bank accounts statements regularly and look for unauthorized transactions, even small ones.  Report discrepancies immediately.

4. Report suspicious activity to the Internet Crime Complaint Center at http://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx a partnership between the FBI and the National White Collar Crime Center.

Other good practices to minimize the risk of becoming a victim:

-Keep a clean computer by having the latest security software, web browser and operating system.
-Make passwords long and strong.
-Connect with care. If an email or attachment looks suspicious, delete it. Be savvy about Wi-Fi hotspots and limit the type of businss you conduct.
-Think before you act.  If it sounds too good to be true, be wary of its legitimacy. It could be, and probably is, an attempt to scam you.

Collecting Mac & Cheese, Please

First Landmark Bank is collecting non-perishable boxes of macaroni and cheese to benefit Center for Family Resources’ 2013 Thanks for Giving initiative. CFR has a number of organizations, especially student school groups, that collect thousands of canned goods. Our idea was to collect mac & cheese to add variety to the CFR food boxes. These boxes are given out by CFR to families who have difficulty keeping food on their table.

We will be collecting the boxes of mac & cheese in the banking office located at 307 N Marietta Parkway in Marietta, through November 11th. We invite you to participate with us in this meaningful food drive.

Questions can be directed to info@firstlandmarkonline.com or by calling First Landmark Bank at 770.792.8870.

Board Names Francis Chairman; DeWitt CEO

On Wednesday, April 17, 2013, the Board of Directors of First Landmark Bank continued its succession plan begun in August 2011 by electing Ronald H. Francis to the position of Chairman of the Board and adding Chief Executive Officer to the title of President Terrence Y. DeWitt.  Immediate Past Chairman John Moore made the announcement at the bank’s Annual Shareholders’ Meeting on Wednesday, April 17, 2013.  

John H. Moore, who has served as Chairman of the Board since inception, remains a valued member of the Board of Directors and will serve as Vice Chairman of the Board and Chairman of the Executive Committee.  Mr. Moore stated, “In planning First Landmark Bank, Ron Francis and I discussed the timeline for when he would devote his time to the Bank’s strategic direction and less time to the day-to-day operations.   The experience he has gained in the three Cobb County de novo banks he guided and grown as well as the wealth of experience and contacts he has gained in his 44-year banking career makes him uniquely qualified to take the reins of Chairman.  These two fine executive officers assumed the responsibilities associated with their new titles effective April 17, 2013.”

Chairman Moore continued, “Since his election as President and Chief Operating officer in August of 2011, Mr. DeWitt has shown himself to be an effective leader, risk manager and strategist.  Having previously served as the Bank’s Chief Financial Officer, we were fortunate to have someone of his experience and caliber in the Bank’s employ since its inception.  ­­Terry has played a key role in the Bank’s success to this point, and the Board enthusiastically supports his ability to continue the momentum of the Bank’s growth.” 

Mr. DeWitt serves with bank Executive Vice President and Chief Lending Officer Terri Bunten Guthrie and Chairman Francis to comprise the Executive Management of First Landmark Bank. 

Previously President DeWitt was with New South Federal Savings Bank in Irondale, Alabama, where he served as Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer and Chief Accounting Officer.  He has also served as Senior Vice President/CFO of Financial Investors of the South, Inc./Bank of Alabama in Birmingham Alabama, and as Executive Vice President and member of the Board of Directors of National Bank of Commerce (now Cadence Bank) in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.  In 1998 DeWitt received the Outstanding Young Banker Award from the Alabama Bankers Association.

His experience in Cobb County includes serving as Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Chattahoochee Financial Corporation and The Chattahoochee Bank in Marietta from 1986 to 1990.  He began his career with Price Waterhouse in Atlanta in 1983. 

Mr. DeWitt is a 1983 graduate of the University of Alabama where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting.  He is a member of the Leadership Cobb Alumni Association, the Marietta Country Club, and the Rotary Club of Marietta, where he was named a Paul Harris Fellow. Mr. DeWitt serves on the Board of Directors and is Finance Committee Chairman of the Cobb Chamber of Commerce and Chairman of the Board of the Cobb Community Collaborative.
