Know how to protect yourself
No one should contact you for your personal information or account data. If this should happen, hang up the phone or delete the email, and contact your bank using the phone numbers on the back of your card. You can also visit your bank's website to report suspicious activity.
We encourage you to monitor your accounts and check your statements regularly for transactions that you don't recognize. Should you suspect fraudulent activity, contact the financial institution that issued your card immediately.
There are many things you can do to prevent fraud. For example, avoid clicking on links you don't recognize, learn about creating smart passwords and shred old statements before throwing them out.
