Due to the Target card breech, it is anticipated there will be an increase in phishing scams. Phishing refers to criminal activity that attempts to fraudulently obtain sensitive information, such as social security number, driver's license, credit card information, or bank account information. Sometimes a scam artist will first send a benign email and then follow that up with a phishing email that usually contains a malicious link. Cyber-criminals have typically used emails to launch this type of attack, but with the widespread use of social media networks and smartphones with internet access, the types of attacks are multiplying.
* Do not respond to any email that directs you to update your personal information by dialing a telephone number. Only use the customer service number on the back of your card.
* If a phishing email references a telephone number that you suspect to be related to a scam, please report the number to the bank or your local federal law enforcement agency. Most agencies now have cyber threat units that are well-versed in investigating these claims.
* Crockett encourages you to set up E-mail Alerts to assist in monitoring your account activity.
