Many thieves use the telephone to commit fraud. These criminals are looking for unsuspecting individuals who will give them important information, like Social Security Numbers, dates of birth, credit card numbers or bank account numbers. Once they have critical company information, they use it to make fraudulent purchases, obtain credit or to access bank accounts.
Remind employees of the following tips to help prevent phone fraud:
- Instruct employees to avoid giving confidential company information to anyone outside of the business.
- Never give company account numbers or credit information to anyone you don't know.
- Remember that PNC Bank will NEVER call you or an employee that is not authorized to access your company account and ask for account or personal information.
- Instruct employees to forward any strange calls requesting company information to management immediately.
