Phishing or fraudulent emails direct you to use a link provided by them to verify or change your account in some way. A common example is when an email is sent to scare you into thinking there's been a security breech and you need to click to link to verify your credentials.
We take your security very seriously and will never send you an email asking you to click a link to verify yourself. We won't ask for any of your personal or account information either.
If you receive a suspicious email, immediately forward it to email@example.com, along with the information listed below. Your quick action helps U.S. Bank fight fraud.
