If you get a suspicious call, email or text, don't give any personal information. It's always a good idea to contact the company directly to confirm legitimacy. Always be suspicious of anyone requesting your personal information over email, text or phone.
Do not click on links in a suspicious email or text.
Never allow remote access to your computer unless you've initiated the contact with a company you trust through a verified phone number or website.
Use strong passwords and PIN numbers, and keep them secret. No BoB employee will ever ask for your Online Banking password or PIN number.
If you think you have paid a scammer through a payment app, report it to the payment app or service and ask to reverse the transfer. Be sure to contact Bank of Bartlett also. We also recommend that you report it to the Federal Trade Commission at ReportFraud.FTC.gov.
