Keep Your Online Transactions & Information Safe and Secure
While the Internet has provided great advances in technology that allow ease and convenience for transacting business, paying your bills, and shopping, it can also provide an entry-way to your personal information if you don’t take the necessary steps to ensure safe and secure online experiences.

Simple Steps to Secure Your Personal Information
Identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes in the United States. It refers to all types of crime in which someone wrongfully obtains another person’s personal data to perpetrate fraud or deception.
Who to Notify If You Suspect Theft
In the event you are victimized by the theft of any of your personal information, immediate action is mandatory to minimize the damage. File a crime report with your local Police department, and request a copy. Contact your bank and all of your creditors by telephone immediately to report the situation, and follow up your call with a letter outlining the suspected fraud.
