Be Safe This Holiday Season

Although the holidays are a joyous, vibrant season, it’s also a time to be wary of fraudsters. Thwart thieves by keeping in mind the most common scams:
  • Phishing: Beware of phony emails or websites that are designed to pilfer personal information and passwords.
  • Tax Scams: Never provide personal information to strangers via phone or email, since fraudsters email or call taxpayers to “confirm” identifying information, such as a Social Security number.
  • Malware: Avoid clicking on unfamiliar links which can install malicious software on devices and steal personal data or drain bank accounts.
  • Dumpster-Diving or Mail Theft: Destroy old utility bills and statements, since fraudsters can use these documents to create new credit card accounts in your name.
  • Wi-Fi Hotspots: Be sure to limit the type of business you conduct and adjust the security settings on your device to limit who can access your machine.
  • Gift Card Fraud: Purchase cards from behind store counters (not in aisles), and check the back of the card to make sure the protective scratch-off is intact.
     
Lastly, protect your account against fraud by advising us of your travel plans before heading out of town: call 516-561-0030.
