Take the keys to consumer control: Prevention and Detection
Prevention stops identity theft at the source and protects your private data before it is compromised by fraudsters. Taking advantage of online bill pay and even good old fashioned paper-shredding contributes to your own online safety.
A strong password contains UPPER & lower alpha characters, special characters and numeric characters. We discourage using your social security number, account number, telephone number, ATM PIN number, birthdate or names or pets and family as part of the password.
Early Detection is equally important. Successful detection includes records consolidation and the regular review of your financial accounts for unusual activity. Banking online gives you quick access to your accounts, so that you can detect fraudulent activity sooner.
