Fraud & Identity Theft Advice

How to Protect Yourself:

  • Never provide personal information in response to an unsolicited request. Emails and internet pages created by phishers may look exactly like the real thing. They may even contain a fake padlock icon that ordinarily is used to denote a secure site. If you did not initiate the communication, do not provide any information.
  • If you are unsure whether a correspondence is legitimate, contact the company. Phone numbers and website addresses should be listed on your monthly statements.
  • Never provide your account information and/or password over the phone or in response to an unsolicited email. We would never ask you to verify your account information or confirm a password online.
  • Review account statements regularly to ensure all charges are correct. Contact us immediately if your account statement is late or does not arrive.
