How To Keep Your Identity Secure
Your identity and confidential information are very important for your financial security. If these are compromised by criminals, you may only discover financial crime when you notice unexplained transactions in your bank account or receive letters seeking repayment of debts you haven’t authorized.
Here are some ways you can ensure that your identity remains confidential and secure so you can have peace of mind and continued financial freedom.
Note: Financial institutions will never ask you for information they already have.
Protect Your Information Offline
Check Your Account Often
Watch out For Fraudulent Emails, Text Messages, and Phone Calls
Know Your Credit Score
Confirm your credit rating: It is a good idea to obtain a copy of your personal credit report on a regular basis to see which financial organizations, if any, have accessed your information.
