Life is a little easier when you use your computer and mobile devices to get things done online. There are a few simple and sensible things you should be doing to help protect your self from online scams.

  • Change your password frequently.
  • Do not use public WIFI to access online or mobile banking.
  • Never click to accept an e-transfer from someone you don't know.
  • Install anti-virus software to protect your data from viruses and malware. Apply security updates as soon as you receive them.
  • Install anti-spyware software to prevent others from gathering information about your online habits or making unauthorized changes to your computer.
  • Implement a firewall to prevent unauthorized access.
  • If an E-mail looks suspicious, STOP before you click!
    • look carefully at what it claims and think about whether it makes sense
    • check the branding, spelling and language to judge whether it seems legitimate.
    • call the company to make sure the email came from them
    • remember that your Credit Union will never email you to confirm personal information

What to do if it happens to you

Acting quickly can minimize damage and help prevent further fraud or theft

  • Notify your Credit Union immediately if you suspect fraud or identity theft. They can provide advice on how to limit access to your credit card or financial accounts and investments.
  • Call the police and file a report. Keep a copy of the report for your records.
  • Change your PIN and passwords immediately.
