Caller Identification Services (caller ID) offered by various telephone service providers may allow you to identify callers.  However, note that caller ID is susceptible to fraud.  Using a practice known as “caller ID spoofing” callers can falsify the name and/or telephone number displayed in order to disguise the actual caller in an attempt to make you believe that your bank is calling.  In addition, the fraudster may then request sensitive information such as bank account numbers and/or social security numbers in an attempt to perpetrate identity theft.

Sunwest Bank does not make unsolicited calls asking for sensitive client information.  If you receive such a call, do not provide any information to the caller, hang up and dial Sunwest Bank directly at (800) 330-9890.
