These top 3 phishing scams are full of red flags:

Phone Call

  • Would your bank ever call you directly to verify your account number or ask to provide personal information? No!
  • Similarly, your bank would also never call and ask you to verify your password or PIN.
  • If you’re ever in doubt that the caller is legitimate, just hang up and call the bank directly at a number you trust.

Text Message 

  • If you receive a text message from someone claiming to be your bank asking you to sign in, or offer up your personal information, it’s a scam.
  • Banks will never text you and ask you to call a new number. If you receive a text and it is not your banks official number, delete it and call your bank directly.

Email

  • Watch out for emails that ask you to click a suspicious link or provide personal information. The sender may claim to be someone from your bank, but it’s a scam.
  • Fraudulent emails pretending to be your bank will often have poor grammar and typos.
