Alerts Regarding Phishing and Web-Spoofing:
- Phishing is an Internet scam (spoof) in the form of an email or pop-up box. The
emails and pop-ups link to sites that look like well-known legitimate businesses
and ask you to provide and confirm personal, financial, or password information.
- Legitimate businesses do not ask for this information unless you initiate a request
for a service. Please DO NOT RESPOND to these emails requesting personal identity,
accounts or password information.
- Scam emails often contain misspelled words, poor grammar, awkward or unprofessional
writing and typos.
- Be suspicious of urgent or alarming appeals that request security information.
If you believe you have received a phishing email that claims to be from Credit
One Bank forward the suspicious email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
