Heightened Risk of Scams and Fraud

Please Note: Fraudsters use global crises such as COVID-19 to phish. Don’t take the bait. Be alert to phishing emails, fraudulent text messages and other coronavirus-related scams. The coronavirus (COVID-19) has provided fuel for cyber criminals to prey upon the public’s concern about this global crisis. Recent scams are designed to trick people into sending money, to disclose personal information or to click on emails and websites that deliver computer malware onto your computer or network.

Cyber criminals are sending emails claiming to be from legitimate organizations with information about the coronavirus. Be on the lookout for suspicious email and text messages, medical supply scams, and fraudulent donation sites that may impersonate a company, charity, or government agency. Make sure to verify the authenticity of any website before making any purchases or donations so you do not share sensitive information. If you receive a suspicious email or text message, don't respond, click on any links, or open attachments. As a reminder, Central Bank will never request your personal information, PIN numbers or login credentials.
