Be your first line of defense
Remember, when you call us at 800.797.6324 , we will ask you for information to verify your identity (such as your name, date of birth, last four digits of your social security number or last four digits of your bank account number). However, we will never call you, text you or email you asking you to verify sensitive information, such as:
- Online banking usernames and passwords
- Your entire social security number
- Your entire bank account number
- Your credit/debit card number or PIN
Be sure to monitor your bank account activity and take action if you spot anything suspicious. Sign up for account alerts in online or mobile banking. If you believe your accounts have been targeted in a scam, or you recognize unauthorized activity call us right away.
