Special Notices


In the past, Shazam has called our debit card account holders if they were seeing fraudulent transactions. They are now sometimes doing text messages.

Here is what their text message would look like:

SHAZAM fraud alert 8552195399: did you use card (last 4 digits of your card number) at (merchant name) for $ (transaction amount)? If valid, reply YES. If not valid, reply NO. To OptOut of Fraud alerts, reply STOP. Phone number to call Shazam is 855-219-5399.

If you receive other types of messages, they are suspect and you should not reply. Someone may be trying to get some of your personal information.

Changing Our Name

As of August 1, 2017, First National Bank of Menahga & Sebeka is officially changing its name to Community First Bank. The bank is changing its charter from a national bank to a state bank. The bank will have the same owners, employees, services, locations and approach to business. The bank’s motto is “Community First Bank—Putting You First.” The bank will have a new logo and a new name but all services will remain the same.

The bank’s insurance agency will continue to operate under its existing name for the time being.

Bill Pay Program Changes



Please DO NOT click on the Bill Pay button unless you want to sign up.

Our Bill Pay program is now called CheckFree. Some changes you can expect to see include:

1. Your pay date will be the day that you want your payee to receive your payment, not the day you want the payment to start processing.

2. You get to hold your funds until the payee receives the check on that pay date.

3. The new system will have a cost of $5.00 per month with no additional fees for payments over 10 per month.

We hope you like the new system. Thank you for your continued support and business.



Shazam Debit Card Customers


Please call us and give us your cell phone number. If Shazam believes there is a fraudulent transaction made with your debit card, they need to be able to call you to verify--especially when you are traveling. We need to supply Shazam with your cell phone number. Call us at 218-564-4171 or 218-837-5171. Specify that you have a Shazam debit card and you are supplying us with your cell phone number. Thank you!

Mobile Banking

You must be signed up for Internet Banking in order to use Mobile Banking. There will be a link and instructions for signing up. Please give Mobile Banking a try. Even if you don’t have a Smart Phone, you can still use the texting option on most cell phones. 


Debit Cardholders: Be on the alert for fraudulent phone calls or emails.

If someone contacts you and states something about your debit card or account being frozen, DO NOT RESPOND, DO NOT GIVE OUT ANY OF YOUR CARD NUMBERS OR OTHER INFORMATION. This is a fraudulent call from someone trying to get information on your card or other accounts. If you accidentally did give them some information, please call us immediately to close your card and order you a new one.
