Scams come in all shapes and sizes. And they are constantly changing. Phony debt collection, jury duty, fake lottery, sweetheart, mystery shopper, tech support – the list goes on and on. 

If something seems “too good to be true”, chances are it is too good to be true and it’s actually a scam. Take a moment to educate yourself and those you care about on spotting scams using the resources below. It may just save you or someone you care about a lot of time, headache, embarrassment, and money. And you can always ask one of us here at First Kansas Bank if something sounds fishy – we’d much rather take a few minutes to talk about it than take several hours trying to fix it later!
