Best practices to help mitigate fraud
1. Never reply to emails, phone calls, or text messages that request your personal information. State Bank Financial will never request this information directly from you. If you receive a message and are unsure, hang up or call us to see if a communication is legitimate.
2. Only do business with companies or people you know and trust. So many people are shopping online these days so take extra precautions before clicking that purchase button. When making online transactions, be sure the website uses secure encryption.
3. Know what is in your wallet. If it’s ever stolen, having previously documented or made copies of important documents and cards and storing them in a secure location, you will have references when trying to recover your items.
4. Be cautious when using public computers or sharing devices with others who may have access to money sharing apps, or if your passwords are saved on your personal device.
5. Password protect your electronics. An open device left unattended is an invitation for fraud. Enable the password feature on your cellphone, laptop, Kindle, iPad, or any electronic devices that contain personal information about you – including, phone numbers, banking information – anything you don’t want in the hands of strangers.
6. Change your passwords often and don’t use the same password for everything. Fraudsters are very savvy and they know people take the easy route by using the same login and password for all their accounts and often don’t change their passwords. An easy way to deter them is to vary your logins and change your passwords often.
7. Watch your U.S. Postal mail. If you haven’t gone totally paperless or know to expect a bill in the mail, keep an eye out because missing mail can be a sign of tampering.
8. Going paperless keeps your information more secure. It eliminates stolen mail situations and if you need the paper copy you can print it at home and put it right into a secure location. If you are waiting for a paper statement, that delays your ability to be able to monitor your activity by 30-45 days.
9. Be on high alert during times of crisis, if there is pressure to take action, or if an offer seems too good to be true. Fraudsters know that by playing on emotions or catching you during a time of distraction or by making you act quickly, you are less likely to think the situation through. Before wiring any money or giving any confidential information away, give us a call to talk it through.
