Important Message from the FDIC
The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) advises bank customers on the potential for confusion between FDIConnect.com and the FDIC-run website, FDICconnect.gov. The FDIC is aware of the website FDIConnect.com, which advertises itself as a consumer-focused provider of FDIC pass-through insurance for bank deposits. The public should be advised that FDIConnect.com is not affiliated with the FDIC.
A similar warning was recently issued by the California Department of Business Oversight.
FDICconnect.gov is a secure electronic portal for the FDIC to connect with financial institutions – not with individual bank customers. Through FDICconnect.gov, bankers can download official FDIC correspondence and conduct secure file exchanges with the FDIC.
