Email Phishing Scams - Catch of the Day

Does that email seem phishy to you? Everyone loves a good phish story. Please share your suspicious emails with Don't let it be a tale of the one that got away!

What is phishing?

Phishing is the attempt to acquire personal information such as usernames, passwords and banking details by masquerading as a trustworthy entity in an email.

Remember that Hudson Valley will never ask you for your password. Treat every email that asks for this information as suspicious. Malicious software comes in many forms - often as attachments or links pretending to be .pdf files or links to amazing videos. These invariably contain malware that will infect your computer. The best prevention is reporting what you've received and deleting the email.
