Over the past several months, we have seen more bank scams asking members to share their mobile banking login information in order to facilitate the deposit of checks into their accounts.
As part of this scheme, credit union members are asked to send money to the person depositing the check, or convert the money to a gift card. But the checks these scammers deposit are fraudulent, and do not clear—leaving members at risk of losing the money they sent to the perpetrators.
Remember: NEVER share your online or mobile banking account information with anyone requesting it to deposit funds into your account. A request like this should always be considered suspicious. If this happens to you, contact us immediately to ensure you do not become a victim of a bank scam.
