We value your privacy. That is why we do not request personal information via e-mail.

It is not from College Savings Bank, a Division of NexBank SSB. It is a hoax designed to deceive you into sharing personal information with identity thieves.

This type of e-mail fraud targets customers of reputable companies and is being used with great frequency by scam artists. Typically, the e-mail warns you of some problem with an account or promotes a special offer and directs you to a web site that appears to belong to a legitimate company. In fact, the web site is fake and any information you provide may be used fraudulently.

  • Never respond to an e-mail asking for your credit card information.
  • Avoid sending personal and financial information by e-mail.
