Be Aware of Email Scams
Criminals are soliciting customers by email in an effort to illegally obtain personal information. The email address and the website address may appear almost identical to those of legitimate financial institutions. The email will claim that there is a problem with an account and will provide a link to a site that may look authentic. You will be asked to input personal information such as bank account numbers, PINs and a Social Security Number. These e-mails attempt to trick customers into supplying sensitive personal data. This fraudulent practice is often called "phishing" or "spoofing". Contact your real financial institution's web site or call them directly.
IMPORTANT: If you receive an e-mail requesting personal information, you should not provide it or click on a link - even if it looks like the request comes from a legitimate website.
Click the links below for examples of what phishing e-mails may look like:
