Pro tips to prevent fraud

  • Choose strong passwords that are at least eight characters, contain numbers, lower and upper case letters, and special characters.  Do not use the same passwords between websites, and do not share your password with others.
  • Protect your online environment. Do not use unprotected internet connections such as public wifi. Encrypt sensitive data and keep updated anti-virus and anti-malware protection on your computers. 
  • Be social media aware. When using social media platforms, never give out private or financial information.
  • Report fraud immediately. Reporting fraud in a timely manner can help minimize the impact and may lessen your personal liability.
