Protect Yourself from Phishing Emails and Scams
Understanding how to identify and handle possible fraud will help you from being a victim of it. In addition to providing information to our customers, our Customer Support Center is available to assist with your questions and concerns.
We would like to alert you about a current phishing scam directed at online banking users. The scam targets users by sending emails that appear to be from an official source and are designed to trick the recipient into clicking a link in the email for the purpose of acquiring sensitive data, such as passwords or financial information.
The phishing emails claim to be from East West Bank and advise recipients to update account information by clicking a link that goes to a fraudulent website. We did not send this email. We do not use emails to request personal information or update security tools.
Please be advised to NEVER click links or install programs suggested in emails, even if the email appears to be from an official or familiar source. We will never send client emails containing links to download software or applications.
Please immediately delete emails such as these, and be careful not to take the actions requested.
Never give out your personal or account log-in information after following a link from an e- mail, even as "identity verification" for a contest. Attackers frequently use such tactics to lure you into giving up identifying information.
