Beware of Phishing Scam

One of our members received an email suggesting that their Hawthorne Visa Credit Card may have been compromised. The email is a phishing scam that takes you to a website asking for your personal information. Please remember that we would never ask for your personal information because we already have your information.

One way you can tell if it's a scam is if you hold your mouse over the link you will see where the link goes. If the link looks suspicious, it probably is. We have a company that monitors suspcious activity on our members' Visa accounts. The company's name is Falcon Fraud. If they suspect fraud, the company would warm your account until they could reach you by phone, not email, to verify the transactions.

Please always be on your guard with personal information!
