The American Bankers Association’s #BanksNeverAskThat campaign returns throughout October to help even more consumers beat scammers at their own game, and Regions Bank is proud to support this effort. We’ve added content, including a series of quick, fun videos to help stop the scammers at their own game.
Every day, thousands of people fall victim to fraudulent emails, texts and calls from scammers pretending to be their bank. We want to change that by raising awareness of best practices for phishing defense.
“The first major step toward remediating fraud and scams is education and awareness,” said Jeff Taylor, head of Commercial Fraud Forensics at Regions Bank. “It’s very important to us at Regions that we make every effort to keep you informed on the latest scams and fraud trends so you are better prepared to recognize an attempt when it comes. This campaign is a nation-wide education effort by the ABA and we are honored to participate.”
In the weeks ahead, we’ll show you what to look out for. That includes:
- How to spot phony phone calls.
- How to recognize fraudulent emails.
- Signs of a scam text message.
- Tricks to make your accounts more resilient to phishing attempts.
- And, to top it off, we’ll give you 5 Phishing Fun Facts.
