Beware of Identity Theft

Identity theft is a crime in which an imposter obtains key pieces of a person's information such as Social Security Number, driver's license numbers or other such items and uses it for their personal gain. This can include obtaining credit, goods, services, money, or property.

Preventing Identity Theft and Account Fraud

A common scam may be a Text message from your bank, asking to reply Yes or No to confirm a certain transaction, once you reply No, a second automated message will inform that your account is now locked, requesting your account PIN to unlock the account.

These are a few of the ways you can safeguard your identity or account:

  • We offer CardValet for your online account, sign-up and receive notice on transactions as they occur.
  • Never click on a Link unless you are absolutely certain, the sender of the message can be trusted.
  • Do not access your bank accounts or make purchases using a public Wi-Fi connection.
  • Do not choose to “Remember” user names or password on your computer or mobile device.
  • Set up a screen lock and a complex password instead of a PIN on your mobile device.
  • Cancel unused credit card accounts.
  • Do not carry your Social Security card, passport, or birth certificate with you, except when necessary.
  • Shred all credit card receipts, canceled checks or other documents that have personal information.
  • Do not give Social Security number, mother's name, or other information over the phone to anyone.
  • Review your account activity on-line, regularly.
  • Inspect account statements immediately and promptly report unauthorized activity.
  • Sign up for paperless statements, consider a locked mailbox at your house or have mail sent to a PO Box.
  • Order and review your credit report at least once a year.
