The City of Huntsville got a boost in its efforts to attract visitors and industries to Huntsville thanks to a $2,200 donation from the Arvest Foundation.


The gift was announced recently at the City Hall in Huntsville. Matt Smith of Arvest Bank was on hand to present the check to Nancy Marsh.

The City of Huntsville Economic Development Program is working to bring in visitors and industry to Huntsville, and the gift from the Arvest Foundation will help the city purchase maps to give to both groups.

"The purpose of this city map is to use with visitors, people traveling through our nice little city, or people who have just moved here,” said Nancy Marsh, City of Huntsville economic development director. “The Economic Development Commission was trying to decide the best use of funds to produce this map and hesitated to sell ads since businesses change and space on the map is used for the ads. The City of Huntsville is excited to receive these funds from the Arvest Foundation for the production of our new city map. These funds will allow us to print more maps. Also, all the space on the map can be used for directions. The new map should be available in September. Thank you again for supporting the City of Huntsville.”

“We are pleased to present this donation on behalf of the Arvest Foundation to support the City of Huntsville and its efforts to get the attention of tourists and industries looking to expand,” said Matt Smith, community bank president in Huntsville. “This donation is just one of many we have made throughout the area. It demonstrates the foundation’s ongoing commitment to Huntsville and all of the communities we serve."

CONSUMER ALERT: ‘Credential Harvesting’ Phishing Scams

Tuesday, July 31 at 02:00 PM
Category: Arvest News

Consumers need to be aware that credential harvesting phishing scams are on the rise.

As part of this phishing scam, criminals are sending personalized email messages with an alarming subject line, such as “Card Deactivation.” The emails include a button to “cancel” the deactivation process, which, once clicked, takes victims to a fake web page that requests user IDs, passwords, and answers to their security questions. Here some other commonly used subject lines used in these scams:

  • Online Banking Alert: Your Account will be Deactivated
  • Dear Valued Customer
  • Failed Package Delivery
  • Reviewing Payments
  • Serious Issues

Arvest Bank would like to remind our customers Arvest will never email, text, or call you unsolicited to ask for account information, social security numbers, online banking credentials, or other sensitive information.

What to Do

If you get an email that appears to be from Arvest Bank and is asking you to click a link and enter data, do not respond.

  • If you received an e-mail like this and entered your personal information, please contact us immediately at (866) 931-9743 so that we can protect your account.
  • If you received an e-mail like this, but did not divulge confidential information, please notify us via email at reportfraud@arvest.com. If possible, please include the original e-mail that you suspect is part of the phishing scam. 

Phishing scams come in a variety of forms. Although most are similar to this one, involving a spoofed email alert, others come in the form of customer service surveys, telephone calls, or even cell phone text messages. Please be aware that while most phishing scams direct you to fake websites, others may ask you to call a phone number where an automated phone system prompts you to divulge confidential information.

While it can be difficult to identify spoofed email messages, websites, and automated phone systems, it is not difficult to know if any of the above may be related to a fraudulent phishing scam. The key is knowing that legitimate businesses do not send messages to customers prompting them to divulge confidential information. If you receive such a message, no matter how genuine it may appear, assume it to be fraudulent and please notify the legitimate business immediately. 

Please visit our Consumer Protection section for information on identity theft, fraud, scams and online threats.
