May 2017 - The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has released an alert about how quickly criminals begin using your personal information once it posted to a hacker site by an identity thief. FTC researchers found that it can take as few as 9 minutes for crooks to access stolen personal information posted to hacker sites.  To prevent identity theft, a user should follow password security best practices, such a multi-factor authentication, which requires a user to simultaneously present multiple pieces of information to verify their identity.

August 2015 - Vishing is the latest weapon used against consumers by identity thieves.  It involves using automatic dialers with faked caller IDs to harvest your sensitive financial information.  They may claim that your account or card has been compromised and ask you to input your account and PIN numbers.  Don't fall for it, even if the caller ID matches the number given by the caller.  Instead, confirm any call by referring directly to your bank or credit card statement.

If you have any questions feel free to contact a customer service representative at (731) 658-5437.
