Phishing and Vishing Awareness
Fraudulent e-mails appearing to be from reputable companies and businesses or government agencies are still on the rise. The Internet scam known as "phishing" is an attempt to obtain your personal financial information. In a phishing scam, you may be warned of a serious problem that requires immediate attention or be redirected to a phony website site that looks exactly like the real thing.
Likewise, in another scam known as “vishing,” crooks use the comfort of your telephone to claim to be with a legitimate financial institution or other entity. These thieves ask consumers to “re-activate” their online banking account, or “verify” or re-submit” personal information.
