Bank of Hawai‘i Warns of Fraudulent Voice Phishing Scam
Bank of Hawai‘i is warning of fraudulent telephone calls being made to customers and non-bank customers. The caller states that the bank is notifying credit card holders that they can obtain a better interest rate, and requests certain personal information, including name and credit card number, to do so. The scammers are spoofing a real Bank of Hawai‘i telephone number on recipients’ caller ID.
Here are some important reminders:
- Bank of Hawai‘i does not call, email or text message customers requesting personal information (name, SSN, PIN, account numbers, passwords, etc.)
- Any such request asking for personal information should be viewed as highly suspicious and recipients should hang up.
- Recipients should confirm the validity of suspicious requests by contacting the company supposedly making the call using phone numbers or email addresses that are known to be legitimate.
In the event a Bank of Hawai‘i customer mistakenly provided personal information, he or she should immediately contact Bank of Hawai‘i at (888) 643-3888 and press “0.” For more information on how to protect against identity theft and phishing, visit the Bank of Hawai‘i website at www.boh.com/idtheft.
