#BanksNeverAskThat Campaign – Click Here to Learn More
October is National CyberSecurity Awareness Month and Essex Savings Bank and the American Bankers Association are teaming up to remind you that #BanksNeverAskThat.
Did you know that every day, thousands of people fall victim to fraudulent emails, texts and calls from scammers pretending to be their bank? These activities are known as phishing and in 2018 cost American consumers $1.48 billion! The problem has only grown worse during the COVID-19 pandemic with the increase in use of digital and online banking tools.
We want to change that by raising awareness among our customers of the best practices for phishing defense. We encourage you to visit BanksNeverAskThat.com to learn more about how to spot phishing scams as well as ways to report or recover from fraud.
