Is it SunTrust, or Is It A Scam?

SunTrust proactively monitors your accounts, but we also want to make sure you’re able to identify legitimate SunTrust communications in order to avoid schemes and scams.

SunTrust will never:
Send unsolicited emails or text messages asking you to provide, update or verify personal or account information, such as passwords, Social Security numbers, PINs, credit or check card numbers or other confidential information. In most cases, we won’t send you emails at all unless you have initiated an email dialogue with us, or have previously requested us to communicate with you in that manner.
