Mobile Deposit Scams

Scammers may ask you for your online banking information and promise to send you money by depositing it straight into your account for you. This is a scam!

NEVER share your online banking login credentials or your two-step authentication code with anyone.

These scammers will mobile deposit a fraudulent check on your behalf to gain access to your account and transfer out your funds.


Common Mobile Deposit Scams

Romance Scam: Online romance scams happen every day. Fraudsters create fake profiles to trick their victims into believing they are in love before requesting money. Don’t send money or give online access to your accounts to anyone, especially to an individual you have never met face-to-face.

Job Scam: Advertisements for mystery shopping jobs are scams. You will be sent a check and told to purchase gift cards with the funds. When the check turns out to be fraudulent, the scammers have already emptied the gift cards.

Loan Scam: Advertisements for fake loans can also convince victims to give access to their accounts to receive a loan. The scammers will deposit a fraudulent check for the loan and gain access to your online banking account.

Prize Scam: Fraudsters will attempt to gain personal information or money by saying that you have won a fake prize. Never pay a fee or give out account information to receive your prize.
