If you receive a call regarding your bank account or personal finances, you should ask which institution is calling. Few of these scammers, if any, have record of your personal finances including where you bank.

Do not give out any personal information over the phone. Your financial institution would never solicit to your personal home or cell phone and ask for your personal finance information such as your full social security number, full bank account or debit card number or PIN. Your bank or credit union will already have this information on file.

Be skepticle of automated phone messages regarding your personal finances. Most scammers won't take the time or risk calling themselves and will use an automated phone system or pre-recorded message to collect your information.


If you are ever in doubt; do not release any information, get off the phone, and phone your financial institution regarding the call to verify its validity.
