How can I tell if a Scotiabank email is legitimate?

As criminals become more sophisticated, so does fraud. Emails and websites that are not legitimate will almost always:

  • Be urgent or threatening
  • Ask you to provide information

Legitimate marketing emails are designed to inform you about a product or service that we think you might be interested in. We will never send you unsolicited emails asking for your password, Personal Identification Number (PIN), credit card, account numbers, or any other personal or banking information.
