Phishers are phishing. Don't take the bait.
When checking email or surfing the web, don't get hooked by phishing scams. Online thieves are casting for Social Security, credit card and checking account numbers, debit card PINs and more. If you get a pop-up or email asking for personal information, don't reply or select a link. Best practice is to never send sensitive information unless you're absolutely sure it's a secure network.
