How To Avoid Them

 

Do not click the link! Whether it's from suspicious texts, emails, or chat messages. Unless you want to be redirected to a fake bank website that looks the same as the real one. These fake bank websites are carefully mapped out by scammers. They will use strong-arm tactics to lure possible victims and steal login credentials and other personal info. Do not give them that chance!
