Enhanced Fraud Detection: Staying Ahead of Scammers
Fraud activity and technology are constantly evolving, with scammers employing increasingly sophisticated tactics. One common threat is an account takeover, where scammers get access to your credentials and pose as you to change your account settings. Phoenixville Federal is actively combatting this threat, ensuring your account and card-level settings remain strengthened against unauthorized changes. We provide you with a smooth, seamless banking experience, without compromising on security.
Educational Empowerment Our Easy Investing Option
While our dedicated security measures are robust, we also believe in providing you with the knowledge to defend yourself against potential threats. A few steps are all it takes to bolster your credit card protection:
Stay Skeptical: Be cautious of any offers that require payment for prizes or gifts. Avoid foreign lotteries, as they are often used to deceive individuals.
Secure Transactions: When selling items, never accept checks above the selling price. If in doubt, suggest alternative payment methods like escrow services.
Be Wary of Requests: If a buyer insists on wiring back funds or asks for sensitive information, terminate the transaction immediately.
Immediate Reporting: Suspect counterfeit checks or fraudulent activity? Contact Phoenixville Federal right away. You can also report incidents to relevant agencies such as the Federal Trade Commission.
Defend Against Identity Theft
Identity theft can have long-lasting repercussions. To shield yourself against this threat, follow these precautions:
Selective Sharing: Only provide your Social Security number and other personal details when necessary.
Secure Disposal: Dispose of any financial records containing sensitive information using a paper shredder.
Monitor Consistently: Regularly review your credit report for unauthorized activities at the three national credit bureaus.
Mail Security: Secure your mailbox and retrieve your mail regularly.
