Common Mobile Fraud

SMS Phishing

Your mobile device can be a target for fraudsters. If you receive any SMS (text) message that you have not requested or are expecting, please contact the sender to confirm the authenticity of the message.

Bank of American Fork will never solicit your personal information by phone, auto-dialer, text message, email or by providing links within an email requesting that you update your information. You will not receive any email notification asking you to click a link or visit a website to unlock/un-suspend your account or to provide any private information unless otherwise requested by you through the online banking password self-reset feature. If you receive an email or phone call requesting confidential information from someone claiming to represent Bank of American Fork, please do not respond.

Please be aware of these types of phishing scams designed to obtain information from you.

Download Scam

Common schemes by fraudsters are to offer free or cheap ring tones, the chance to win fantastic prizes or fraudulent financial applications to gain access to your mobile device. These methods are used by fraudsters to install malicious programs, such as keylogger, Trojan, malware or spyware, to gather personal information from a mobile device.
