Never respond to an email you’re not sure about, as it may be part of a ‘phishing’ scam. Phishing emails typically direct you to click on a link to visit a website where you are asked to update personal information, such as a password, credit card, social insurance or bank account numbers.
Keep in mind that Zag Bank will NEVER ask you to reset your credentials or disclose information via email, or text messaging.
As a simple rule, 'when in doubt, DON’T,' that is:
- Don’t respond to questions
- Don’t click links
- Don’t open documents
- Don’t dial numbers
- Don’t download email images
…that are provided to you via a suspicious email, text message or telemarketing call.
Instead, open a new browser window and type in our URL (www.zagbank.ca) and log in. If there is an issue with your account, or you think someone is trying to scam you, contact us by phone at 1-844-Zag-Bank (1-844-924-2265) or through our secure email channel by logging in to Zag Online.
