I wanted to make everyone aware that there is a new scam coming through email. Potential victims receive an email from your bank complete with bank logo. The email states that your account had suspicious activity and therefore the bank “locked” or “froze” your account. Then it instructs you to “click here” for a link to verify your account and open it. The link will take you to a page that looks like an authentic online banking site. Do not respond to the email simply delete it and notify your bank.
If you ever receive an email from your bank requesting that you take action, please call the bank or go to the bank in person to verify the request!
Hope you are enjoying your summer!
