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.
