People who are attempting to steal your identity may send you an email that appears to be from Community Bank of Elmhurst.


From time to time we hear from Bank customers who have received e-mail communications from someone purporting to represent the Community Bank of Elmhurst Customer Service Department. The messages indicate there is a problem with your account and you should click on a provided link to update your account information within 48 hours. These e-mail communications are fraudulent.
No one from Community Bank of Elmhurst will ever ask you to update your personal information via an e-mail message.
If you receive any e-mail communication purported to be from Community Bank of Elmhurst which you suspect may be fraudulent, please call me, Abel Rubio, at the Bank’s main telephone number, (630)782-1234.
We take electronic banking fraud very seriously. The safety of your personal information is important.  Please be suspicious of anyone requesting your personal information over the telephone or the Internet.
