I Just received this email that really looks like it’s from my bank. When I looked at the title, I thought maybe there had been updates and I had to authorize something for my online payment options. That didn’t last long.
As I ALWAYS do – I placed my mouse over the link to reveal what is shown in the lower left corner. Obviously that is NOT from my bank.
The next thing I noticed was the email address – again, obviously NOT from my bank.
When you get a notice that LOOKS like it’s from your bank, go to the website and log in – if you have messages from your bank – they will be there.
Banks NEVER send you emails that require you to click on links to take you to your banking website and NEVER ever attempt to log in once you have clicked. Once you do, someone, someWHERE will have your banking information.
Be smart – don’t fall for these kind of scams.
