Beware of social media scams that offer money if you share your online banking login credentials. Scammers may deposit checks into your account and ask you to send them a portion back in cash. The checks then bounce, and you will be out the cash you sent them. What’s the best way to protect yourself?
- NEVER share your login credentials with anyone
- NEVER deposit checks from a stranger and then wire cash; chances are this is a scam
