All About Phishing
Phishing. It's a term for a specific form of scams. Phishing is fraud. Plain and simple. But every day, thousands of people fall for fraudulent emails, texts, and calls from online scammers pretending to be a bank.
Some of these fakes are obvious, while others can be quite convincing. Being able to tell th difference between scammers and your real bank can help save you a mountain of headaches.
That's where we come in. October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month and we want to do our part to raise awareness and help educate everyone on the best practices to help avoid a fraudulent phishing scam.
