Personal Small Business Corporate & Institutional About Us
The security of our customers’ accounts is a top priority. Due to the diligence of PNC’s Fraud and Cyber Defense team, we were made aware of a scam targeting customers of a number of financial institutions, including PNC, predominately with text messages that appeared to be official bank communications. Some customers shared sensitive personal and financial information as a result.
This is called phishing - the attempt by fraudsters to steal your personal and financial information, sometimes through e-mails, mobile text messages (SMiShing) and phone calls.
We are alerting customers of the warning signs of a phishing scam and steps you can take to help protect your sensitive personal information and accounts.
