Phishing is a type of Internet piracy where thieves are “fishing” for your personal and financial information. This is a high-tech computer scam that uses spam or pop-up messages to attempt to deceive you into disclosing personal and financial information. They are looking for account numbers, Social Security numbers, passwords, credit/debit card PIN numbers, and other confidential information. With this information, thieves may be opening accounts and credit cards under your name, making ATM and Point of Sale transactions on your cards, applying for loans, buying expensive items, or even committing crimes in your name. They send out thousands of lures and hook only a few victims.
Please rest assured that Armstrong Bank is dedicated to helping our customers stay safe from these types of scams.
Recognizing fraudulent emails may be difficult. When reviewing emails in your inbox, always keep an eye out for potential phishing emails by looking for misspelled words, misused words, or a copy of a website you recently visited within the body of an email.
