10 Tips to Thwart Phishing Attempts


Phishing is on the rise because, unfortunately, it is still working.  Please review these tips to prevent phishing fraud:

  • Only open email messages from a known or trusted source. 
  • Financial institutions and the SHAZAM network do not contact cardholders to request payment card data, passwords, Social Security numbers, PINs or other sensitive information. 
  • Do not provide sensitive information to anyone unless you are certain of the recipient's credentials. 
  • Do not click hastily on links within email messages. Connect directly to the institution's actual website or speak directly with a representative. 
  • Do not download suspicious attachments. 
  • Be skeptical of unsolicited telephone calls, email, texts or social media messages, especially if they request card data or personal information, or if they ask you to visit another website.
  • Install technology solutions to detect and counter phishing attacks, such as spam monitors or software that detects spoofed websites.
  • Look for phishing red flags, such as poor grammar, misspelled words, vague instructions and generic greetings.
  • Report suspicious messages or websites to your card issuer immediately to verify if they are legitimate.
  • Report a suspected card compromise to your card issuer immediately.
