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.
- Credit One Fraud Alerts messages are provided to you at no cost. You will not be charged for alerts received.
