The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) cautions: Don’t click on that random text. It’s a scam.
We’re here to help if you suspect you’re a victim to a scam effecting your account(s) or if you’re suspicious of any communications, calls, or texts you’ve received.
Today’s most common consumer scam is the Imposter Scam. The scam begins with a text or a call; the scammer pretends to be a person or business you trust to convince you to send them money or share personal information. Zeal, as well as any other legitimate business, will never contact you to request sensitive information such as: Your Online Banking password/username, PIN(s), or account number – and we’ll never request that you wire us money.
