Albany -- If you get a strange email claiming to come from a bank asking for your personal account information, don't fall for it.  

Several fake emails are circulating telling customers there is an error in their bank account. It says customers have 24 hours to confirm their personal identification number or their ATM card will be de-activated.

One of the emails claims to come from Heritage Bank. It takes you to a fake website which resembles the real website for Heritage Bank in Kentucky, not Heritage Bank of the South.

Bankers say they will never send you an unsolicited email asking you to confirm your personal information.
