Peace of mind that's Priceless

Know how to protect yourself

Be informed 

No one should contact you for your personal information or account data. If this happens, hang up the phone or delete the email, and reach out to your bank using the phone numbers on the back of your card. You can also visit your bank’s website to report suspicious activity.

Be vigilant 

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.

Get educated 

There are many things you can do to prevent fraud. For example, avoid clicking on links you do not recognize, learn about smart password creation and shred old statements and documents containing your personal information before throwing them out.
