Suspicious Emails

Is your inbox full of crazy claims? Scammers have become pretty sophisticated when it comes to getting your attention - and - your sensitive information.

Keep your guard up, especially if you receive an email for:

  • A free credit report: They might be trying to get your bank account info or Social Security Number.
  • Free internet services (like internet acceleration or virus scanning): When you follow their directions, you could inadvertently reconfigure your browser and allow them to decrypt your sensitive data.

Our best advice:

  • Don’t click on links in unsolicited emails, no matter how great that offer seems.
  • Verify that the sender’s email address matches the company’s website.
  • Whenever you download something new, carefully read the privacy policy.
