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
([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.
