BEWARE OF FRAUDULENT E-MAILS
Recently we have heard of people receiving fraudulent e-mails that appear to be from their bank or even from the FDIC, when in fact the e-mails were sent by imposters. These e-mails may request the reader to provide or confirm important personal information, either by return e-mail or by going to a website, that can be used for fraud or identity theft. This is sometimes known as “phishing.”
How can you be assured that the e-mail you receive from Manufacturers Bank is legitimate? When Manufacturers Bank sends out an e-mail notification our name is presented clearly on the “from” line. We do not ask you to send us sensitive personal information by e-mail, nor do we send out e-mails with your personal information or request you to update or confirm personal information by e-mail or at our website.
If you ever have any doubt about an e-mail that appears to be from Manufacturers Bank , call our Customer Contact Center at (877) 560-9812 or your relationship manager to confirm that it is authentic.
Also, be aware of websites that look like legitimate sites; these can be phony sites that are designed to collect personal information, also for fraudulent purposes. Do not provide personal information or perform transactions on a website that you reach by clicking on a link in an e-mail or another website, unless you are certain it is legitimate, and make sure that any website you use to perform transactions posts information about its privacy and security policies.
