Online Fraud Advisory
We will never send emails that require customers to send personal information to us via email, website link or pop-up windows. Any unsolicited request for your account information you receive through emails, websites, or pop-up windows should be considered fraudulent. Online fraud occurs when someone poses as a legitimate company to obtain sensitive personal data and then illegally conducts transactions on your existing accounts. Often called "phishing" or "spoofing," the most pervasive methods of online fraud are emails, counterfeit websites and pop-up windows, or any combination of these.
Fraudulent emails often:
• Appear to be from a legitimate, trusted source. You should not rely on the name or address in the "From" field, as this can be easily altered.
• Ask you for personal information. These emails often claim that your information has been compromised or frozen, or ask you to confirm your identity.
• Link to counterfeit websites. These websites may appear legitimate, but actually collect personal information for illegal use. They may also include a link to the real website in an attempt to make the link seem legitimate.
• Contain fraudulent phone numbers. These telephone numbers are usually tied directly to the fraud perpetrators. Never call a number featured on an email you suspect is fraudulent, and be sure to double-check any numbers you do call. In addition, a legitimate number may be included in an attempt to authenticate the email.
To help protect yourself from these fraudulent emails and websites:
• Never provide sensitive account or personal information in response to an email.
• Delete suspicious emails without opening them. If you do open a suspicious email, do not open any attachments or click on any links it may contain.
• Bookmark any websites that house personal account information and use those bookmarks to navigate directly to those websites.
• Install and regularly update virus protection software.
• Keep your computer operating system and web browser current.
