Protect Your Identity
Attention Accountholders: United Midwest Savings Bank or an affiliate (United Financial Bank of FL, MBC, or FMF) will never call you and ask for your account numbers, Personal Identification Numbers (PINS), or any confidential information.
What is Phishing?
“Phishing” (pronounced “fishing”) is when someone tries to trick you into giving them confidential information so they can steal your money and identity. Phishing may be done using email, phone calls or voicemail, or text messages. In each case the goal is to lure you into revealing confidential information such as bank account numbers, credit card information, your Social Security number or your Personal Identification Number (PIN).
What are Vishers?
Vishers are fraudsters who reach out to you by phone instead of email. They’re after the same thing as phishers – your confidential banking information. Fraudsters can spoof caller ID to make it look like a call is actually originating from United Midwest Savings Bank. So how can you tell whether a caller is the real deal?
It’s Simple. United Midwest Savings Bank or an affiliate will never call you and ask you for your account numbers, Personal Identification Numbers (PINS), or any confidential information. Do not provide any confidential information over the phone unless you initiated the phone call. Hang up and call United Midwest Savings Bank at 800-686-2052 or go into your local branch if you suspect fraud.
If you are targeted by someone you can register a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission at www.ftc.gov/complaint or call FTC Hotline at 877-382-4357 (877-FTC-HELP).
