Scam Alert – Don’t give out your account or online banking login info!

Scammers often pose as online lenders, employers, and romantic partners.  They convince victims to give them their account numbers or online banking login info; claiming it is needed to make a deposit to the account (Ex: to deposit loan proceeds, payment for service, or money they need help sending out to a friend).  Sadly, the deposit they make is from a fraudulent source, but before it bounces back, the scammer instructs the victim for one reason or another to use those funds to send out a wire, purchase gift cards and provide the codes, or send the money through a payment system such as Venmo or CashApp.  In the end, the fraudulent deposit bounces back, and the victim is on the hook to repay all of the money – including what they already paid out to the scammer.

If any individual or business deposits money to your account, and gives you instructions to send money back out for one reason or another, STOP It is likely a scam!  Once you send money to a scammer, there is often little we can do to help you get the money back.
