  Victory State Bank: Beware Fake E-Mail Scam


STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Victory State Bank is once again calling attention to an alert from the FBI.

The FBI has warned of bogus e-mails claiming to be from the Better Business Bureau. The fraudulent e-mails are notifying companies of supposed customer grievances.

The e-mail recipient is asked to review the attached “complaint,” which actually contains a virus. One victim business lost nearly $100,000 when fraudsters electronically stole money from the company’s bank account after the virus enabled them to capture passwords and other important banking information.

In-person networking is written into the schedules of many ambitious entrepreneurs. When it comes to attracting potential clients and industry partnerships, there is no modern-day improvement upon an old-fashioned face-to-face greeting and solid handshake.

Victory State Bank Warns of New Spin on Old Scam


STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. – Victory State Bank wants consumers to be aware of a new variation on an old scam.

According to Jennifer Leach, consumer education specialist at the Federal Traded Commission (FTC), the scam begins when an ususpecting person answers the phone.

The caller will say something like:  “Ma’am, I’m calling from the government. We’re about to send out national medical cards for the new Affordable Care Act. You’re one of the lucky people to get yours first, so I just need to confirm your name, address and phone number.  Oh, and your bank account number, too…”

Ms. Leach warns that this kind of scam pops up anytime there’s a big change in a government policy, or when a topic is in the news. 

Scammers use people’s uncertainty to try to get them to reveal personal information. From there, it’s not much of a leap to identity theft, with scammers racking up bogus charges on your credit cards, opening new credit cards in your name, even taking out loans in your name.

STAYING SAFE

You can protect yourself. If you get a call asking for your information, hang up. It’s a scam.

Government organizations and the legitimate groups you do business with have the information they need. They’ll never call to ask you for it.

If you get a call like this, Ms. Leach asks that you report it to the FTC.

The phone number on your caller ID – if there is one – or the name or location of the caller – is helpful information to investigators and professional fraud fighters. 

You can report it online or on the phone, toll-free, at 1-877-FTC-HELP.  Your report might help stop the scammers, and it could help keep others from being scammed.
