Fraudsters are trying to take advantage of consumers by pretending to be from Amazon. They are claiming there are suspicious purchases being made and they want to help you remove them from your account. Fraudsters are then gaining access to cell phones by tricking consumers into downloading an app. This is a SCAM. A reputable company will never request access to your personal device. If you receive one of these emails or phone calls, PLEASE DO NOT FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS PROVIDED.
As a reminder, if you are ever asked to provide sensitive information, such as your card number or PIN, or your Digital Banking Login ID or password, PLEASE DO NOT GIVE IT OUT.
If you received one of these fictitious messages and allowed someone to access your personal device or gave out your information, please contact us immediately at 860-563-2617.
