Once scammers or cybercrimes have gotten their potential victims' Bank of America information, they will use it to steal their money and use their accounts to commit fraud. Therefore, if you have received messages appearing as if they came from the Bank of America, asking you to call a number or respond to them with your personal or financial information, please do not follow the instructions in the messages and report them to the Bank of America. Always go directly to www.bankofamerica.com and sign into your account. Once you have signed in, you will be notified of changes or updates to your account.
If you were tricked into following instructions in a fake Bank of America or BofA message, please contact the Bank of America for help using the telephone number on the back of your credit or debit card. Let them know that you were ticked by cyber criminals into submitting your account information on a phishing website.
