Receiving strange emails, texts, or calls?
Every day, thousands of people fall for fraudulent emails, texts, and calls from scammers pretending to be a bank by spoofing a bank's phone number or name when contacting people. These are commonly referred to as phishing scams and victims can lose hundreds, even thousands of dollars.
Phishing is when you get emails, texts, or calls that seem to be from companies or people you know, but they’re actually from scammers. They want you to click on a link or share personal information (like a password or social security number) so that they can use that information to steal your money and/or identity.
