Stop, Shop, & Stay Alert

Your security is our priority! Protect yourself and your accounts from fraud with these helpful tips:  

  • Buying gifts online can be a convenient way to shop for the holidays. Remember to be smart when giving out financial information.
  • Do your shopping with established sites that you know and trust.
  • Visit sites directly instead of responding to links in emails. 
  • A secure site will begin with "https" not "http".
  • Never submit your credit card number to any site that isn't secure. 
  • When shopping online, be suspicious of offers on electronic gadgets that seem too good to be true.
  • Don't open attachments or click on links from unsolicited emails - even if they offer coupons or a contest. They often lead to malicious websites.
  • Even social networking sites may tempt you with glittery ads. Be cautious and refrain from entering credit card information.
