Protecting Your Information

Your personal information is always at RISK.

 
Below are reminders for how to keep your information safe.

Refuse Access to your Computer
 
  • NEVER allow access to your computer from unsolicited requests.
  • Don't call the number or click on the link in a pop-up message such as: "Your computer has been infected with a virus, please call support at 888-888-8888 to fix this problem IMMEDIATELY!"
  • DO CONTACT YOUR LOCAL TRUSTED COMPUTER STORE FOR ASSISTANCE.
 
STOP-Don't Click, Don't Send
 
  • Don't click on a link from an unsolicited email or text message.
  • Don't provide card information just because someone says they need it.
 
Keep your information secure
 
  • Shred your documents prior to throwing them in the trash.
  • NEVER give out your bank information, credit card numbers, or social security numbers.
 
Investigate Origin
 
  • DON'T send payment until you verify the request is valid.
    1. Law enforcement doesn't call people with warrants and request payments for bond.
    2. IRS will NOT call and request a pre-paid card, gift card, and/or money wire for back taxes.
    3. Verify with a trusted loved one before sending money to a family member in trouble.
    4. DON'T TRUST MONEY REQUESTS from person(s) you've met online!
    5. Fraudsters can create spoof emails, text messages, computer pop-ups, and phone numbers that look like legitimate communications.
