Be Wary of Suspicious Links

Banks will never send you an email or text asking you to click a suspicious link.

Beware of Scare Tactics

Scam emails, texts, and calls may pressure you, or even threaten you, to respond. Just ignore it, and call your bank directly.

Protect your confidential information

Your bank will never ask you to provide confidential information (your account number, SSN, name, address, password, etc.) in emails or text messages. Your bank will only ask for confidential information to verify your identity when you call them on their Customer Service line.

Call the number on the card

Some fraudsters may try to reach out to you by phone. They can fake the Caller ID to make it look like the call is coming from your bank, and may even know your name. So how can you tell if a caller is the real deal? It's simple. Your bank will never call you and ask you for your account information. If you didn't initiate the call, just hang up and call the number on the back of your card.

Watch for misspelled words

Fraudulent texts and emails often have typos. Real banks use spell check.
