Phishing scams are getting more and more sophisticated. Recently banks across America joined forces in a coordinated, industry-wide campaign to educate consumers about phishing scams and how to thwart them. The new #BanksNeverAskThat campaign uses attention-grabbing humor to reinforce the notion that banks do not text, call or email customers asking for sensitive information like their passwords and PIN. Banks are providing eye-catching and engaging short videos, animated GIFs and consumer tips on social media and in their bank branches to highlight common phishing schemes.
