Stay Aware of Money Transfer Scams

It’s important to stay aware of the latest tactics cybercriminals are using. Be especially aware of text messages that appear to be from a bank, asking if you initiated an instant payment using a payments app. Your bank will never send you a text like this or ask you to transfer money from your payments app.

Remember, only use payment apps to send money to people you know and trust.

Keep in mind, cybercriminals use text messages, emails and phone calls to impersonate companies and banks, even mimicking phone numbers. If a call, email or text seems suspicious, do not respond. Hang up the phone or delete the message right away.
