Text Message:
Your bank will never ask you to sign in, or give personal information via text message. #BanksDon'tAskThat

Email:
Watch out for emails that ask you to click on a link or provide personal information. You can report suspicious emails by sending them to abuse@usaa.com.

Phone Calls:
If you didn't expect a call from the bank, it could be a scam. Don't provide any personal information, just hang up and call the bank yourself. 

Stay vigilant and protect yourself against scams.
