Beware of USBank.com Fake/Phishing SMS or Text Messages

U.S. Bank customers are asked to look out for phishing SMS or text messages that appear as urgent alert notifications, asking them to click on a link. The fake text messages, sent by cybercriminals, have links that go to a phishing USBank website that steals the credentials, or usernames and passwords of USBank customers. Once the cyber-criminals who sent the fake messages have gotten the stolen information, they will use it to gain access to their potential victims' USBank accounts and use the accounts fraudulently.

The Phishing U. S. Bank Text Message

From: usbinf75@verizon.com

([www.USBANK.com] Alert - Urgent Notification. Follow: http://bit.ly/2d0onbK Today.)

USBank customers should never click on a link in a text or email message to sign into their accounts. They should instead, go directly to www.usbank.com and sign in from there. And, if there is some wrong with their accounts or they are to view some important message, it will be shown to them right after they have signed in.

Now, USBank customers who have already been tricked by the fake text messages, are asked to change their USBank password, check their accounts for any discrepancy, and contact USBank immediately.

    Now they are fishing regular email, not just texts. I don't have a USBank account, but I got this message:

    "usbank@stjamesmac.com
    U.S. Bank Message

    View this email as a Website page. See our Security Policies.


    Your credit-based card was billed at Apple Store for $2,834.56.
    Please do not reply to this email. If you would like to contact us, please log in to U.S. Bank Online at usbank.com and send a message to Customer Service.
    You are receiving this e mail because you signed up for notifications via U.S. Bank Online Banking. If you no longer want to get this alert, log in to U.S. Bank Online Banking at usbank.com to temporarily terminate or permanently delete this notification.

    This is the second scammer that said I had a charge from the Apple Store; nope - never bought anything from there! Thanks!

      Contact your local police department immediately to file a theft report. You should also contact SSA directly at 1-800-772-1213 to request a replacement Social Security Card.
