Be aware of the latest scam activity
We’ve recently seen digital money movement fraud on the rise. A scammer can contact you requesting payment through a Wire Transfer or transfer via Zelle – these methods allow money to be sent quickly, and the funds are often hard to trace and recover.
You should never wire money or send money using Zelle to:
- Anyone who claims to be from a government agency
- Any stranger, no matter what reason they give you
- A telemarketer trying to sell you something
- Anyone claiming your account is compromised
- Unauthorized, unverified cryptocurrency sites or salespeople
- Anyone asking you to send money to yourself
Stay vigilant to protect your personal accounts.
|If you get a suspicious call, email, or text, don’t disclose any personal information until you verify it’s from a legitimate source. If you have any doubt, contact the company directly.|
|Only allow remote access to your computer when you’ve initiated contact with a company you know through a verified phone number or website.|
|Always protect your debit/ATM card and PIN. Be sure it’s not easily guessable. Remember, Green Country staff will never ask for it.|
|Set up 2-factor authentication (multiple ways to identify yourself) with the companies you work with to help keep your device and money secure.|
|If you suspect one of your accounts has been compromised, immediately change your user ID and password and contact us.|
