• Yes, you got to be careful
  • At the very least, get your bank to put a transaction alert on your account.
  • They can clean out your account.
  • You should be okay as long as you didn't give them your username and password. Routing numbers and account numbers are easily obtainable every time you write a check - both are on the bottom of the check. So there was no harm done there. HOWEVER, 😆 if you get the opportunity to obtain THEIR routing and account numbers, you can cause them some serious problems. It happened to me recently - I was informed that I'd won $3.5 million in the Reader's Digest Sweepstakes. All I had to do was pay the $5000 processing fee up-front. I knew it was a scam, of course. But the guy sent me to a web page that gave his routing and account number (again, not dangerous in itself - that information is used every day). But I found out that you can locate the bank on the web by doing a search on the routing number. Once I found out the name of the bank, I used a link on their site to report a fraud - I gave them the account number. The guy called back the next day to give me a new bank account number to where I could send the processing fee - because something happened to the account he'd given me the day before. I told him that I could help him with that - I told him that I reported him to his bank and they shut his account down. He wasn't a happy camper, to say the least. I thought about it later and realized that not only did the bank shut his account down, but they also seized all of the assets in it. 🤣 There's no telling how much he had in that account from doing this scam - he may have lost hundreds of thousands of dollars! 🤣🤣🤣 I WAS KARMA THAT DAY.
