Scams & Phishing
Phishing is a common cyber-attack where scammers trick you into providing sensitive information, such as your login details, financial information, or personal data. Phishing attacks can come in many forms, such as fake emails, text messages, or phone calls. They often use urgency or fear to manipulate you into acting without thinking it through.
If you fall for a phishing attack, your personal information can be stolen and used for identity theft, financial fraud, or other malicious purposes. That’s why it’s essential to recognize and report phishing attacks as soon as you suspect you’ve been targeted. It’s clear that cyber threats are a growing concern in today’s digital age and protecting ourselves online should be a top priority.
Identity theft happens when someone uses your personal or financial information without your permission to do things such as open accounts, file taxes, or make purchases. This happens most often with Social Security Numbers.

Fraud comes in many forms. This usually involves urgent-sounding emails, phone calls, or text messages that claim to be from legitimate organizations or charities. These types of scams tend to occur in times of crisis, such as natural disasters, when people feel particularly vulnerable and eager to help others. Please do not share your personal or financial information if you are unsure of the situation.
If you fear you may have been a victim of fraud, a scam, or bad business practices, you can report the issue to the Federal Trade Commission. Or, if you think your Union State Bank
account has been compromised, please contact the Bank by calling 1-855-468-6872 or contacting your local branch. A complete list of Union State branches can be found here.
