Five Ways to Avoid Credit Fraud

  • 7/10/2019

1) Keep your credit cards safe

Store your cards in a secure wallet or purse. After making a purchase, immediately return your card to that place.

2) Don’t allow websites to “remember” your card number

Only let secure payment portals, like GooglePay and PayPal, remember your card number. An even better practice is to never check the “remember card number” box for any site or portal.

3) Be wary when shopping online

Before using your credit card online, verify the site’s security and that the URL is authentic—there’s an “s” after the “http” in the web address, and a lock icon as well.

4) Report lost or stolen cards immediately

The sooner you report a missing card, the less liability you’ll have for fraudulent charges made with your card.

5) Review your monthly bill

Always look through your monthly statement to check for suspicious account activity.
