At M&T, one of our responsibilities that we take very seriously is the safeguarding of your personal and financial information. Whether you're banking online, by phone or visiting one of our branches, we are committed to protecting your personal information. You also have our commitment to keep you informed about the different fraud schemes that may arise and threaten your personal and financial information. Check back occasionally for updated messages.
- Unless you initiated the contact, M&T Bank will NOT request your personal information (e.g., account number, Social Security number or mother's maiden name) through email, U.S. mail or by phone.
- Never give out personal information in response to an unsolicited call or email.
Please notify us immediately if you receive unusual calls or emails claiming to be from M&T Bank. Be especially wary of those requesting account information to "award a prize" or "verify a statement." Report unusual inquiries or other suspicious activity to your telephone company, M&T Bank or local law enforcement authorities.
If you believe you have been a victim of fraud related to your M&T accounts, notify us immediately at 1-800-724-2440 or send an email, so that we can take action to help you.
