Here's what you need to know about phishing.

StonehamBank continues to monitor and respond to the outbreak of COVID-19. There has been an increase in phishing events during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is important that you understand phishing events and educate yourself. Phishing events are when a fraudster attempts to steal a person’s data, mainly login credentials and card information. The fraudster then uses this information to process fraudulent card transactions or ATM withdrawals. Fraudsters often utilize social media or information bought on the Dark Web to initiate scams.

Tips to protect yourself from phishing scams.

Where do I stay up to date on COVID-19?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has up to date information about COVID-19 and can help you learn how to protect yourself and your loved ones.
