Telephone Scam Warning - April 2015
UB Police have received reports of a telephone scam where automated calls are received with the call posing as a bank representative initiated contact attempting to obtain personal information.
The scam: various UB community members have received computer-generated calls claiming to be from their financial institution. The calls claim the person's bank accounts and/or identities need to be verified and then direct the person to call a toll-free number or long distance number and supply a PIN code to verify their personal information. The toll-free number may include a recorded message that asks the customer to key in their account number, PIN and other forms of identity. Awareness is key in combating fraud.
Should you receive any questionable calls or emails, do not provide your personal information including your account numbers, PIN numbers or social security number. Remember:
- Banks will NEVER initiate a call or email to you requesting your personal information.
- Do not call back a number provided over the phone or click on a link in an email.
- Most fraudulent communications will include something that will concern or excite the victim.
If you have been the victim of a scam, file a complaint with local law enforcement and notify your financial institution through their published customer service number or at your local branch.
