Security & Identity Protection
An educated consumer is the best customer! Fraudulent activity cannot be completely eliminated, but through consumer education, the risk of falling prey to these criminals can be greatly minimized.
Keep your personal information private. Financial institutions will never send emails requesting personal information. They will never ask you to "verify " information in this manner. They will never ask you to click on a special link to do so. Do not surrender your personal information through emails, telephone calls you receive, or mail responses.
