Don't Be Fooled:
Neither Shelby State Bank nor the IRS will ever contact you unexpectedly and ask for your passwords, Social Security Number or other personal information over the phone, by text or email. If you see a request like this, you can be sure it is a scam. Don't reply, don't click, and don't believe what you see.
