Fowler State Bank will hold its annual Go Green Shred Day on Saturday, June 1st from 10 AM until Noon.  Cintas Document Management will be doing the shredding in the main bank parking lot.  There is no charge, but a donation of canned goods, dried goods, or a monetary donation will be accepted.  Donations will be given to our local food pantry.

To help offset the rising costs of college, many investors are establishing 529 accounts, which allow earnings on investments to accumulate tax-free.  What’s more, as long as the money is spent on qualified higher education expenses, withdrawals are also tax-free.  Yet, misconceptions about these accounts persist, preventing some investors from taking full advantage of the tax benefits.  Click here to test your knowledge with a quick true-or-false quiz.

If you are interested in more information, feel free to contact Linda Brouillette or Anne Molter at the Main Bank.

Home burglaries increase as the weather warms up.   However, scamming knows no seasons.  The following questions will help you better protect yourself against a variety of criminal activities.  Think about how you would react in each of the situations.  It is always better to be safe than sorry!

Q: What should you do if your wallet is stolen?
A: Report the theft to police immediately, and send copies of the report to card issuers and credit bureaus to clear up any resulting identity theft.

Q: You get an email from a well-known company, how can you tell if it’s a scam?
A: You’re a customer but you never provided your email address, the message begins with “Dear Member” or “Valued Customer” even though the company has your name, you hover over the link to see the full URL and the company’s Internet address is missing, incomplete, or ends with letters such as “.us” or “.exe.”

Q: A loved one calls saying they were arrested while vacationing and they need money.  What do you do?
A: Hang up immediately and try to contact the person or other family members.  Crooks can easily learn family names!

Q: You receive a check which you are told is partial payment for winning a lottery.  You’re instructed to deposit the check and send away a certain amount for taxes.  How can you tell if the check is authentic?
A: These checks are always a scam. You never have to pay up-front, taxes or otherwise, to claim a prize.

Q: A contractor you do not know offers a big discount on a home repair. How do you know it’s a rip off?
A: His truck has no company name or bears an out-of-state license plate, he wants payment up-front for materials, or he offers to help finance the project.
