There have been recent incidents of scammers sending fraudulent text messages impersonating First Hope Bank and other banks to try and trick consumers into sharing their online banking login credentials.  Do not click on any links in text messages from numbers you don’t recognize.  First Hope will never text, call, or email you for your banking information.  If you receive an inquiry or don’t recognize a transaction in your account, please contact the Bank immediately at (908) 459-4121 or (973) 729-8333, or visit your local branch.

“I just love First Hope Bank! Just a note to the Founder expressing what a beautiful/lovely Fall landscape display you have provided for your customers! It is a joy to bank in Sparta and I leave there each time with a huge smile on my face! It is the most beautiful bank around. There aren’t enough words to express just how delightful each and every one of your Associates truly are. It’s a pleasure for me to visit each time.”

“I believe that a bank is as good as the individuals that they hire and train. First Hope Bank seems to do a great job with that aspect. They seem to have all the modern technology without losing the personal attention to their customers.”
