One of the best things in life is having a friend.    (Hear More)


And one of the worst things in life is having an enemy. One of the worst enemies we all face today are identify thieves. At Friend Bank, we want to help you fight this enemy.


So in May, at all Friend Bank locations, we hosted what we call Community Shred Days. We partnered with a certified shredding company. During our Community Shred Days, many of our friends came by the bank and dropped off records in a secure bin, which were then safely destroyed.


In addition, during the month, Friend Bankers visited our local Senior Centers to share more about keeping personal information secure.


If you would like more information including safety precautions for internet banking or shopping, how to avoid identify theft online, and the role of banks in protecting customers, follow us on facebook for tips from the FDIC.



Friend Bank is a third-generation family business and one of Alabama's oldest community banks. The bank operates five full-service banking offices, in Slocomb, Dothan, Geneva, Hartford and Newton.
