Once Fifth Third Bank's customers attempt to sign into the fake or phishing website that the link goes to, their banking credentials will be sent to the cybercriminal behind the scam, who will use the stolen information to gain access to their accounts, steal their money, and use the accounts fraudulently.

Therefore, it is important that Fifth Third Bank customers never click on links to sign into their accounts. They should instead, go directly to www.53.com/ and sign-in from there. This will prevent them from being tricked into visiting phishing websites that steal personal and financial information.

Fifth Third Bank customers who have been tricked by the phishing email, or those who think they have been tricked, should contact Fifth Third Bank for help.
