  • Check your credit report. Make sure your credit history is correct phishing fish
    by checking your credit report with each of the three national credit
    reporting companies. Learn more.
  • If you bank or pay credit cards on-line, avoid passwords that include personal information, such as mother's maiden name or date of birth. Instead, use something unique that only you know.

  • Don't give out personal information over the phone, through the mail, or on the Internet unless you've initiated the contact and are sure you know who you're dealing with.

  • Banks will not ask you to verify personal information over the phone or via email. If you receive a phone call or email asking you to verify information, end the call, do not respond, and call the bank directly.

  • If you receive an e-mail asking for personal information, do not hit the reply button or click on any website link in the e-mail. Instead, go directly to the sender's website by typing in the sender's website address.

  • Protect your personal information. Don't leave sensitive documents containing personal information where anyone can see it.

  • Use a shredder before disposing of personal records, especially financial records - preferably a cross-cut shredder (thieves have been known to paste together single-shred documents to obtain information).

  • Don't use an automatic log-in feature on your computer.

To report your lost or stolen credit or debit cards, please notify us as soon as possible.
