Fraud Prevention

Sophisticated software used by financial institutions makes it difficult for cyber criminals to retrieve what they are looking for. Instead, criminals phish, spy and hack their way into your information from other sources, piecing together what they need to access the sensitive information they want.

Fraud Prevention Month highlights the importance of empowering consumers to be actively involved in fraud prevention, and to be aware of the many potential fraud related scams that impact you, your family, your community or your business.

It’s not always easy to determine what is an internet scam or fraud, or even what is of interest on your computer or mobile device. The key to being safe is recognizing the signs and taking proper precautions when volunteering your personal information.
