We all know at least one friend or family member who has been affected by a phishing attack or another type of scam. With the increase in technology use, we also find a rise in fraudulent activity. Phishing tactics are becoming more cutting-edge as fraudsters now have the ability to "spoof" phone numbers, email addresses, and even social media accounts making communication seem as though it's coming from a friend, a family member or even your bank.
ChoiceOne Bank wants to give you tools to keep you vigilant and able to spot these scammers before they take your private information.
Know the bait, avoid the hook and protect yourself.
As always, ChoiceOne is here if you have any questions or concerns about your accounts, security, or your money. Visit our Security Center with more resources on phishing and other scams found in everyday life.
