Chase Bank History

Chase Bank traces its origins back to 1799, when The Bank of The Manhattan Company was founded by Aaron Burr, Alexander Hamilton, and several other prominent figures of the time. The bank later merged with the Chase National Bank in 1955 to form what is now known as Chase Bank.

Chase National Bank was founded by John Thompson in 1877 and was one of the largest banks in the United States. Over the years, the bank grew through a series of mergers and acquisitions, including the acquisition of J.P. Morgan & Co. in 2000, which led to the creation of JPMorgan Chase.

About the Chase Bank Identity Theft Scam:

The Chase Bank Identity Theft scam is set up to take users personal information. The scam impersonates a security message from Chase Bank. It informs the user that there has been fraudulent activity on their debit card account. The user is prompted to press a number to speak to an Chase Bank representative.

This type of scam, commonly known as "spoofing," involves a fraudster making a phone call and disguising their identity by using technology to make it appear as if the call is coming from a legitimate Chase phone number or local number. The fraudster may then claim to be a representative from Chase and ask the victim for personal information, such as their account number, Social Security number, or other sensitive data.

It's important to note that Chase Bank, like many other legitimate financial institutions, will never ask for personal information over the phone or via email. If you receive a call that you suspect is fraudulent, do not provide any personal information and hang up immediately.
