Privacy and Security

At First American Bank, your protection is important to us. And the best way to stay secure online is to take preventative measures.
 
If you feel you have been a victim to fraud, immediately notify the financial institution or organization where you have the relationship with which has been compromised.  This can be your credit card company, bank, lender, etc. to let them know of the fraudulent activity directed against you. Describe the circumstances with as much detail as possible.
