• Phishing is an internet scam (spoof) in the form of an email or pop-up box. The emails and pop-ups link to sites that look like well-known legitimate businesses and ask you to provide and confirm personal, financial, or password information.
• Legitimate businesses do not ask for this information unless you initiate a request for a service. Please DO NOT RESPOND to these emails requesting personal identity, accounts or password information.
• Scam emails often contain misspelled words, poor grammar, awkward or unprofessional writing and typos.
• Be suspicious of urgent or alarming appeals that request security information.
• If you believe you have received a phishing email that claims to be from UBA Bank forward the suspicious email to firstname.lastname@example.org
