Jun 10, 2022
Simple steps to better protect your account
Nobody wants to be a victim of fraud, but recent scams show that criminals are getting smarter and more creative with fooling people into sharing private information. Below are a few ways to stay ahead of fraudulent activity and safeguard your bank account.
Update Your Contact Information
Keep your email address and mobile number up-to-date on your accounts so we can get in touch quickly if there’s suspicious activity.
Protect Private Information
If you receive a text message or phone call from a financial institution, safeguard your card number and PIN. Remember, when we contact you we will never ask for sensitive information (account number, username, passwords) in an email, phone call or text message.
Set Alerts with SmartCard
When you download the SmartCard app, you can register and set alerts to help you keep tabs on your accounts.
Chip technology provides an additional layer of security. If a merchant offers it, be sure to use the chip option to avoid the possible theft of your data.
Avoid the theft of your personal and banking information. Sign up for electronic statements and keep fraudsters out of your mailbox.
