FTC issues consumer alert regarding scam calls related to fraud activity on your bank account

The Federal Trade Commission has issued a consumer alert about scammers calling and claiming to have discovered fraud or criminal activity on your account. 

From the alert: Did someone supposedly spot fraud or criminal activity on one of your accounts? Did they offer to help “protect” your money by moving it from your bank, investment, or retirement account? Maybe they even asked you to share a verification code? If anyone did any of those things, it’s always a scam.

So, what do you do next? Please click here to read the full FTC consumer alert with guidelines for what you should do and how to keep your accounts safe.
