Phishing and Smishing

"Phishing" and "smishing" are designed to steal information by posing as a legitimate company. Criminals attempt to con or mislead individuals into providing personal information in many ways, including by email, text message and scam phone calls that appear to be from a legitimate business. Personal information that may be requested includes:

  • Credit card information

  • Account passwords

  • Account information

  • Other valuable information

 
Tips to protect yourself from phishing:
  • Check for misspelled words in the email and closely examine the return address.

  • Unless you have pre-enrolled with a company to do business via email, be suspicious.

  • Contact the company you normally do business with and ask them to verify the request.
