Banks Never Ask That

We want every bank customer to become a pro at spotting a phishing scam, and it starts with these four words: Banks Never Ask That. When you know what sounds suspicious, you're less likely to be fooled.

SCAM #1: TEXT MESSAGES

Your bank will never ask you to sign in or give personal info via text message. Banks don't ask that.

SCAM #2: EMAIL

Watch out for unsolicited emails that ask you to click a link or provide personal information. Banks never ask that!

SCAM #3: PHONE CALLS

If you didn't expect a call from the bank, it could be a scam. Banks don’t call out of the blue!

SCAM #4: PAYMENT APPS

Beware of text messages asking if you recently make a large peer-to-peer (P2P) payment. Scammers may be trying to get your login credentials or trick you into making a P2P payment to them. Banks will never ask for a six-digit code that appears on your phone!
