ABA’s Education Campaign

October 5, 2020

In my day job, I am a Solutions Architect * who works at a bank. Since fraud is on the rise, I thought I would share information about the American Bankers Association (ABA) campaign to raise awareness of phishing scams as part of the national Cybersecurity Awareness month. The campaign is under the hashtag BanksNeverAskThat (#BanksNeverAskThat) https://www.banksneveraskthat.com. It runs until October 31, 2020.

Try the quiz at https://www.banksneveraskthat.com to see how much you know about what banks ask and don’t ask. Just for fun, after you take the quiz, put your score in the comments below this post.

To encourage people to take the quiz the ABA is offering prizes if you share the quiz on twitter. Here is an overview of the rules taken straight from the https://www.banksneveraskthat.com site:

Take the quiz. Find your scam score. Win weekly prizes.


  1. Take the quiz below. **
  2. Share the quiz on Twitter for the chance to win.
  3. Retake the quiz to improve your score, then share again.
  4. Each Friday in October, we’ll draw 15 weekly winners, with 1 Grand Prize winner at the end of the campaign.

No purchase necessary. Void where prohibited. Ends 10/31/20. See official rules here.

  1. To help us better know you, maybe you could do a post and tell us your pet’s name, the name of the street you lived on as a child, your favorite color, mother’s maiden name, oh and maybe throw in the last four digits of your social security number?
