The Village Bank offers customers the ability to send a secure email to the Bank. Secure email is the only way to be sure your confidential information, account number, tax ID numbers and financial statements are delivered safely.
Why use secure messaging?
Internet email is an insecure communications channel. Messages sent via standard internet email travel in “plain text” and cross many networks before reaching their final destination. As a result, an opportunity exists for prying eyes to eavesdrop on email messages. Therefore, standard email should not be used to exchange sensitive or private information such as Social Security numbers, bank account numbers, financial statements, etc.
