What banks are doing to protect you from frauds and scams

Banks take extensive steps to protect your money and personal information and provide a wide range of fraud prevention information for customers. It is important to remember that fraudulent e-mails, voicemails and texts sent out by criminals may look and sound like they come from banks or retailers, but they are scams and should be reported to the company being spoofed and deleted.

To report a fraudulent email, be sure to send the email as an attachment.
