These Days, Fraudsters have utilized the phony credit alert method to defraud victims out of money, products, and services for at least two decades. Numerous people, according to studies, have fallen for the false credit alert scheme and many more continue to fall victim due to a lack of understanding.
In this article, we’ll go over three easy ways to spot a fraudulent bank credit alert so you don’t fall victim to identity theft. Check them out via the links below.
First, there will be no money added to your bank account.
When money is deposited into your bank account, you’ll see the sum grow rapidly. A credit alert that appears in your phone’s inbox but doesn’t actually affect your account balance is likely to be a scam. When you get a credit alert, your available balance goes up immediately.
Second, your available balance is not displayed on the bogus notice.
The available balance column in your alert message is another simple way to recognize a bogus credit notice. Credit alerts that don’t show how much money is in your bank account are almost certainly fraudulent and should be reported.
Third, the transaction rarely leaves any traces in your inbox.
When a credit or debit transaction is processed through your bank, a notification is typically sent to the email address associated with the account. If you make a credit purchase and don’t receive an email notification, it’s suspicious. For purposes of record keeping and validation, banks typically email customers with transaction proof.
