Consumer Scam Alert

Recently, the Federal Reserve Banks have received a number of unauthorized transactions in which consumers have tried to use the Fed's routing numbers and their Social Security numbers to pay their bills.

Consumers cannot not use Federal Reserve routing numbers when making online or e-check bill payments. The Federal Reserve provides banking services only for banks. Individuals do not have accounts at the Federal Reserve.

Any video, text, email, phone call, flyer, or website that describes how to pay bills using a Federal Reserve Bank routing number or using an account at the Federal Reserve Bank is a scam.
