Protecting Yourself and Your Business!
Banking online makes just about everyone's life a little easier. With the online ease comes the need to ensure your transactions are processed accurately and securely. You are your own best defense against fraud, identity theft, and other scams.
The more you know -- the better. Be suspicious of any letters, e-mails, or phone-calls that ask you to give your account numbers or verify your personal information. A bank or government institution won't ask for that kind of information by those means.
