Fake Bank Email

I received this email the other day, so I thought I’d share with you some ways that you can tell if you received a fake bank email or not.
 
I cannot stress enough – even if you receive a REAL email from your bank NEVER click on a link contained in the email; always go to the internet and login that way.
 
Below is an image with some pointers of things to look for. If you feel that you have clicked on a “fake” bank email – go to your bank (or a branch of your bank), explain your situation and they will begin the process of helping you. Usually this MAY include closing out accounts, opening/issuing new accounts, etc.
 
This particular fake email is very genuine looking – would you have believed it?
 


 
If you have questions about an email you received, please feel free to send me an email and I’ll be more than happy to help you distinguish between real and fake. Be cyber safe!
