A Message about the Coronavirus
Dear Valued Friends:
During these uncertain times, the health and personal safety of our customers and banking team is our #1 priority. Among other things, this has led us to limit lobby access by appointment only. We continue to monitor changing conditions closely and adjust our plans accordingly. As an “essential business,” we intend to remain open for business and serve our customers. We apologize for any temporary inconvenience.
Over the past 152 years, Nodaway Valley Bank has navigated many challenging events, including the 1918 Flu Epidemic, two world wars, countless floods and economic downturns by sticking to time tested principles which center around putting people first.
We know that many people are experiencing financial hardship through no fault of their own as a result of the COVID—19 pandemic. We want to help wherever possible. Please do not hesitate to ask if you think we can be of assistance. The federal government is also trying to help by providing individual stimulus checks and emergency loans to businesses of all kinds. Watch this site for more information.
Unfortunately, these circumstances provide opportunity for scammers to prey on unsuspecting people by posing as a company, charity or government agency. Please be on the lookout for suspicious email and text messages asking you to share personal information. NVB will never ask for your personal credentials by telephone, email or text message. If in doubt, search for published contact numbers online or in your local directory and use to make a call back to verify the call is legitimate.
It is our privilege to serve you. Thank you for placing your confidence in us.

Watch Out for Fraud
FBI Anticipates Rise in Business Email Compromise Schemes Related to the COVID-19 Pandemic
Fraudsters will take advantage of any opportunity to steal your money, personal information, or both. Right now, they are using the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic to further their efforts.
Business email compromise (BEC) is a scam that targets anyone who performs legitimate funds transfers. Recently, there has been an increase in BEC frauds targeting municipalities purchasing personal protective equipment or other supplies needed in the fight against COVID-19.
In a typical BEC scheme, the victim receives an email they believe is from a company they normally conduct business with, but this specific email requests funds be sent to a new account or otherwise alters the standard payment practices.
