Security Alert: Caller-ID Spoofing Scam

In Brief

Beware of scammers using caller ID spoofing to make it look like they are calling from CAP COM. We will never ask you for your PIN or personal information when we call you. Hang up if you are unsure and call us back at the number listed on our website.

Important Note

CAP COM will never ask you for your PIN or instruct you to delete the CAP COM app.

What to Do

If you ever get a call from someone claiming to be from CAP COM, or any other financial provider, be cautious before answering any questions. Even if the call appears correct on the caller ID, it might not be legitimate. Fraudsters could be engaging in a “caller ID spoofing” scam to make it look as if they’re calling from your financial institution’s phone number.

The Tipoff

Here’s a clue the call might be a scam. CAP COM will never call you and ask you for your PIN or any other personal information. We will not tell you to delete the CAP COM app. When you call us, we could ask you for some personal information to verify your identity, but we will still never ask you for your PIN. If you’re unsure whether the person on the phone is a CAP COM employee, end the call and dial the number listed on our website: (800) 634-2340. A legitimate representative from CAP COM or any other financial institution would welcome a call back.

Beware. Details of the call may vary, as those with malicious intent modify their tactics to trick consumers. Learn more about phone spoofing, courtesy of the Federal Trade Commission. 

This Scam is Trending

We have seen instances where fraudsters tell members there is fraud suspected on their card based on a charge made in another state. When the member denies this purchase, the scammer says he will deactivate the card and send a new one. Then, the individual asks for your PIN. Don’t be fooled; do not share your PIN! If you suspect fraud, contact CAP COM at (800) 634-2340. Remember: CAP COM’s top priority is protecting members' accounts.
