We were notified that a new phishing email is circulating from someone posing as “The Electronic Payments Association” with the subject line "Rejected ACH payment.”
The email informs recipients that they have had an ACH transfer declined and that they can view the declined transaction by clicking on an attached Microsoft Word document. The Word document contains malicious code that will install on the recipients’ PCs.
If you receive such an email (a sample is provided below for reference), please delete it and do not open any attachments. This phishing email is in no way related to First Interstate Bank.
If you have any questions about this or any other suspected email scams, please contact your local First Interstate Bank branch or our Corporate Security office at 406-237-2702.
