Forcht Bank will never contact you first and ask for personal information (ex: Online Banking credentials, Social Security Number, PIN, etc.). If you receive a text message, phone call or email asking for personal information DO NOT provide it. Scams involving text messages, spoofed numbers, and impersonation of financial institution employees are on the rise. If you are suspicious, hang up and call us directly at 844-436-7248.


If we detect fraudulent activity on your debit card, we’ll check with you before allowing potential fraud on your account.


For an optimized online experience, we strongly recommend using Forcht Bank’s Business Online Banking with either Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge browsers
