Clicking the link takes the recipient to a web page that is visually similar to the First & Farmers National Bank login page.

First & Farmers National Bank says "These messages are fraudulent. Any customer who receives such a message needs to delete and do not respond. Remember: NEVER give out your account information, passwords, or social security numbers, unless you have initiated a call to a known number for the bank.

It's good practice to never log in to important sites from links in emails or text messages.

Carol Perkins: Cards and Roses

Previous Column: Her eyes pleaded for help

By Carol Perkins

Valentine's Day is a chance to find love. That's how it was once depicted. Send a card and red roses and hope the girl will be overcome with gratitude and accept a first date. Oh, no, I think that's only in Hallmark movies, and the girls are always working in a florist. Roses would be the last thing to woo her.

Finding love, according to reality shows, is not easy. Are there more people looking now than ever? Are they picky, high maintenance, needy, or have difficult personalities? Usually, a couple gets married and then finds out those things!

Many of my high school friends married young. Most are still together after sixty years or more.
