Be Cautious of Increasing Bank Scams

The text "Cybersecurity Tip of the Week"

Several major banks are notifying customers of an increase in fraudulent text messages and calls stating that they are calling from the bank’s Fraud Department. These scams typically feature texts and calls, telling customers to log in to online banking, change passwords, and provide security codes. These types of calls often repeat, and the callers are persistent and convincing. Banks will never call or text asking you to provide personal or account information.
