Now that the holiday season has passed crime, fraud, and identity theft is on the rise. Do not be a victim; follow the tips below to help avoid this from happening to you:
*PREVENTION - Keep personal information private by eliminating the circulation of your confidential paper documents removing the threat posed by unsecured mailboxes.
Electronic bills and statements -. Many companies allow you to select electronic bills and statements. PSB&T offers all our customers FREE Online Banking including Online Statements.
Pay bills online - Use online bill payment on a secure Internet access (not a public Wi-Fi hotspot) instead of mailing checks. PSB&T’s Online Bill Pay offers you peace of mind you are utilizing a secure network. If you must mail checks, do so at a post office or post office box directly. NEVER leave outbound bills and checks at your mailbox for pickup by your mail carrier.
Direct Deposit - Whenever possible have your funds direct deposited into your account. A few examples are payroll checks, government issued checks, and reoccurring deposits.
*DETECTION - In 2011, 43 % of fraud was first detected by the victims.
Take control - Monitor your account(s) daily with PSB&T’s Online Banking, Mobile Banking or 24-Hour Telephone Banking.
Set up alerts - sent by e-mail or to a mobile device giving you a chance to quickly, detect if your banking information has been compromised as well as giving you the advantage of reporting it early and bringing it to a stop.
