Misuse of Prudential Name in Fraud Schemes
From time to time, the Prudential Financial name and logo have been misused by unauthorized individuals for fraudulent purposes. These misuses include:
- Emails requesting your username and password for your Prudential Online account as part of a database upgrade
- False offers for work-at-home employment from individuals posing as Prudential executives as a way to obtain banking information or money from victims
- Counterfeit Prudential checks sent as part of a mystery shopper or undercover customer service evaluator scam
- Classified ads in local papers offering loans at very low interest rates
- Emails that claim Prudential is the guarantor of financial transactions
- Websites that represent an affiliation with Prudential
Prudential Financial takes these matters seriously and works with the appropriate authorities to investigate such scams.
