Please remember that Star One employees will never call you to verify or ask for your personal information.
Hang up immediately if someone claiming to be a Star One employee asks for any banking information—such as your Online Banking login information, account numbers, card PINs, or one-time passcodes.
A fraudster may try to reassure you that it's OK to share your information—please hang up, it's not OK.
Several Star One members have received phone calls from a person claiming to be a Star One employee—with a caller ID forged to look like a Star One phone number—and whose goal is to gain access to members' bank accounts online.
