Avoid Fraud Online While You Do Your Last Minute Christmas Shopping

It’s that time of year again to make the mad dash to pick up the last few presents for our loved ones. But, it’s also that time of year for Cyber Criminals to ramp up their fraud activities! 

These quick tips straight from our IT Department will help you keep your money safe while you scramble for coupons and cross your fingers for two day shipping!

Take a closer look at email coupons 

If you receive coupons in your email that are just too good to be true, chances are they are. Make sure to properly vet any coupon you receive. Sometimes these can lead to fake websites that could steal your payment information.

Double check the websites you visit

Make sure the sites you visit are legitimate by checking the spelling of the URL like amazan.com or amazone.com instead of amazon.com.

Be wary of new vendors and new companies

Fraud actors can be quite creative during the holiday season. A quick google search will provide some insight on any newer websites that have great deals.

Keep a constant eye on your Honor accounts and credit cards

If you monitor your accounts diligently, you will be able to catch any fraud charges before they can do much damage. The Honor mobile banking app allows you to lock/unlock your debit and credit cards as well as report them stolen. Simply download Honor Credit Union's free mobile banking app to get started!
