FDIC Alert: Beware of Bank-Related Scams | Ron Benvenisti

In light of recent bank failures, CISA (Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency) warns consumers to beware of potential scams requesting your money or sensitive personal information. Exercise caution in handling emails with bank-related subject lines, attachments, or links. In addition, be wary of social media pleas, texts, or door-to-door solicitations relating to any failed bank.

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), the “Receiver” of failed banks, would never contact you asking for personal details, such as bank account information, credit and debit card numbers, social security numbers, or passwords.

To avoid becoming victims of scams, consumers should review the following resources and take preventative measures:

Consider reporting scams and fraud to the police and file a report with the Federal Trade Commission.

  1. Somewhat related, this happened to me last week, I dropped a letter with a check in the public mail box to Charles Schwab and the next morning the bank called me asking me if I wrote out a check to Adrian Hernanadez. Apparently, the letter was either stolen out of the mail box or the post office and they scrubbed the check so perfectly and rewrote every detail except for my signature and it only got flagged because of the high value. Bottom line, beware of sending checks out in the mail.
