COVID-19 Vaccine Fraud

Due to the public’s invested interest in COVID-19 vaccines and the evolving nature of information surrounding vaccine distribution, scammers are targeting individuals with fraudulent phone, email and text message schemes to solicit social security numbers, financial account numbers and other sensitive information.

We strongly encourage our customers to be skeptical of unsolicited offers to receive a COVID-19 vaccine inconsistent with your state’s vaccine distribution plan and to avoid completing a vaccine signup form from questionable or unknown senders. If you are unsure about the validity of a request you receive or have questions about your state’s vaccine distribution plan, we encourage you to contact your local health authority.

Remember, Washington Trust will never contact you to ask for personal or sensitive information. If you notice any unusual or suspicious behavior in your financial accounts at any time, contact us immediately to ensure the safety of your accounts is maintained.
