By operation of federal law, beginning January 1, 2013, funds deposited in a noninterest-bearing transaction account (including an Interest on Lawyer Trust Account) no longer will receive unlimited deposit insurance coverage by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). Beginning January 1, 2013, all of a depositor's accounts at an insured depository institution, including all noninterest-bearing transaction accounts, will be insured by the FDIC up to the standard maximum deposit insurance amount ($250,000), for each deposit insurance ownership category.

Persons contacting you in this way are "phishing" to try and obtain your confidential financial information. "Phishing" is pronounced "fishing," and that is exactly what these thieves are doing: "fishing" for your personal financial information.
Do not "click" on any links or open any attachments if you suspect a "phishing" attempt. Rather, please contact the bank immediately if you feel you have received a message and may have had your personal information compromised.
