Protect Your Account from Online Fraud
The Internet is not immune to fraud. Cyber-criminals will use spoof e-mails, phony web sites, and other deceptive practices to try to obtain your personal information; this is known as “phishing”. Spoof emails are phony emails that appear to have originated from a legitimate company. These phony emails ask you to go to a spoof web site and provide your personal account information. To bait you, often these deceptive emails may allude to an urgent matter concerning your account. In many cases, there is no easy way to determine that you are on a phony web site because the URL may contain the name of the company it is spoofing.

If you believe that there is a problem with your account, please contact us at 1-800-543-4466 (9:00am to 5:00pm EST, Monday - Friday) or email us at custserv@gesswein.com.
