Keep Your Personal Information Safe
Banks, insurance agencies, retailers and credit card companies continue to be targeted with fraudulent phishing, spoofing , and scamming attacks. But you can reduce the chances of becoming a victim by remembering these tips.
Phishing attacks involve the mass distribution of spoofed e-mail messages with return addresses, links and branding which appear to come from a trusted organization. While we are unaware of any recent incidents involving Mission Valley Bank, or our clients—over the past few years, our customers (and those of other financial institutions) have reported receiving fraudulent e-mails that appear to be from our bank (and others).
Please be advised that use of our name and logo in these “phishing” schemes is done without our consent in an attempt to obtain sensitive, personal information. It’s important for our valued customers to know that Mission Valley Bank will NEVER send you an e-mail from firstname.lastname@example.org. This e-mail address is used only for incoming e-mails to the bank. Additionally, Mission Valley Bank will NEVER initiate a request for sensitive information such as your social security numbers, account numbers, or passwords from you via e-mail.

Reminder — Please remember to safeguard your personal information. Mission Valley Bank will never call or email you to verify your sensitive information or pass codes.
