PREVENTION CRIME TIP – Credit card fraud protection tips
Here are some tips on how to prevent credit and debit card fraud.
- Don’t give your account number to anyone on the phone unless you’ve made the call.
- Carry your cards separately from your wallet. It can minimize your losses if someone steals your wallet or purse.
- During a transaction, keep your eye on your card. Make sure you get it back before you walk away.
- Open your bills promptly — or check them online often — and reconcile them with purchases.
- Report any questionable charges to the card issuer.
- Notify your card issuer if your address changes or if you will be traveling.
- Don’t write your account number on the outside of an envelope.
- Clear your logins and passwords. This is especially important if you’ve been working on a public computer.
- Be alert for phishing, a trick in which spam or pop-ups mimic
legitimate banks or businesses to obtain your personal information,
which they use to access your accounts. Always verify that you’re on a
familiar Web site with security controls before entering personal data.
