PLEASE BE AWARE OF COVID19 SCAMS
A number of scams are emerging that are designed to take advantage of public fears surrounding COVID19. For example, scams have included emails, letters, banner ads, and phone calls designed to capture personal information while asking for a donation for someone that is sick, to help find a cure, or for a research study. The Federal Trade Commission offers tips to avoid the most common COVID19 related scams. For more information, visit consumer.ftc.gov.
Additionally, there have been reports of recent scams where someone will contact you, impersonating your financial institution. When in doubt, please hang up and call Pearl Hawaii directly at 808.737.4328 (73-PHFCU) or email us through our secured messaging system at pearlhawaii.com.
