Someone is sending faxes offering small business loans to area businesses using Peoples Bank name. But Craig Deere with Peoples Bank & Trust is warning area business owners that these faxes are not coming from their bank.
Deere says most community banks do not solicit business through fax, and even bigger banks rarely use the practice.
While the fax does not have the correct name of People’s Bank and Trust listed, it does list that they are located in Taylorville. Deere says if you ever receive something like this that you are skeptical of, don’t hesitate to call the bank.
The Miller Media Group was one local business that received this fraudulent fax. You can see the fax below.
