In general, here is some information to keep in mind:
- Do not reply to suspicious emails and do not provide callers with sensitive or personal information.
- Call the referenced company using a phone number from a trusted source such as business literature you received in the past or their official website. Do not call the number referenced in the suspicious communication.
- Check the validity of a link within an email by rolling your curser over it and previewing the URL within your browser. If it does not match that of the business they claim to represent, do not trust it.
- When conducting business on the web, use only secure websites. The address of a secure website will begin with "https," and in most cases, your browser will indicate it is secure by showing a padlock in the lower right corner.
If you are uncertain about any communication you receive via phone, mail, or email from someone alleging to represent Allstate, please contact your Allstate agent, 1-800-Allstate or ScamsHoaxes@Allstate.com.
- Allstate will not call you or send unsolicited emails requesting your Social Security Number, personal information or financial information.
- Allstate does not take part in lotteries or random mailings of checks or monetary prizes.
