There are many different scams where people are trying to get your personal and banking information. Our advice against fraud?
- Do not give out your information to ANYONE! A phone call from your "bank" could be a phishing attempt to learn all your account information.
- If you get a call about your account, hang up and call your financial institution to make sure that the call is coming from your bank rather than from a fraudster. Remember, no real bank is going to call you in the middle of the night.
- Do not reply to any text messages or emails asking you to verify your account information or personal information.
If you have any questions or if any of these things have happened to you, call your financial institution and make sure no fraud has occurred on your account.
*Remember, do not share your bank account information with anybody but your financial institution.*
