Be wary of red flags by paying attention to the details of the instructions such as the beneficiary, beneficiary address, amount, etc.  If the instructions are not within the usual transaction pattern or behavior of the Customer Care agent, probe further to give you a hint if the caller and his/her instruction are both legitimate. If you already suspect that your account may have been compromised, immediately contact your branch of account or Customer Care at 888-791-88. Thank you.
