Guam - BankPacific is warning residents about a phishing scam. The bank has received reports that an individual claiming to be a representative from BankPacific in Hong Kong seeks bank account and other personal information over the phone. BankPacific president and CEO Phil Flores says the company does not maintain an office in Hong Kong and it does not request bank account or other sensitive information via phone or unsecured mail. 

Residents who receive a telephone call or e-mail message requesting confidential financial or personal information are asked to get the phone number from your caller ID and report it to the U.S. Secret Service at 472-7395 and the Federal Trade Commission at 1-877-382-4357.
