How good are you at spotting a scam?
Better yet, do you know what to do if someone tries to get your money and information?
Take a few minutes and test your knowledge with the American Bankers Association’s “Play Scam City.” It’s a fun, interactive game that will help you spot potential fraud.
It’s all part of the ABA’s annual #BanksNeverAskThat campaign. Throughout the month of October, the ABA and Regions Bank have shared tips, videos and other important information to help you protect yourself.
That’s because phishing has reached epidemic proportions. Scammers use texts, emails and phone calls while posing as reputable companies in attempts to get you to reveal personal information, including account numbers and passwords.
Throughout October, we will show you what to look out for. That includes:
- How to recognize email scams.
- How to spot phone call scams.
- How to identify text message scams.
- And how to defend yourself – and respond, should you fall victim.
You can get a head start by going to the ABA’s website now: Home – Banks Never Ask That!
We’ll have fresh content on Doing More Today each week through the end of the month. And, as always, you can find more fraud prevention information from us at regions.com.
