Email: Traditional phishing is usually a two-part scam involving email and may contain links to a fraudulent website that appears legitimate, but is actually a hoax designed to capture your personal or financial information.

In exchange, scammers promise you a portion of the funds you deposit.

Scammers use these sites to meet potential victims.

They create fake profiles to build online relationships, and eventually request you send money due to a hardship. Scammers ask for your debit card and PIN and/or mobile banking username and password to deposit a fake check into your account.

Once obtained, your personal and financial information can be used to access your account and steal money.

Scammers hope to convince victims to reveal their information by using compelling language, such as a need to communicate with you for your own safety or account security.

Tip: Keep in mind, you will be responsible for the full amount of the check and associated fees if the check bounces.

Also, depositing fraudulent checks can cause your account to be closed, and may also negatively impact your credit report.

Once you provide this access, the scammer may require payment for technical assistance, install malicious software, change settings to leave your computer vulnerable, and/or steal your financial information.
