While you're crossing everything off your to-do list this holiday season, keep these tips in mind to keep yourself safe from fraudsters:

  • Stay alert to phishing attacks by avoiding clicks our opening attachments in unsolicited emails as well as never providing sensitive information through email.
  • Use reputable retailers when you are making purchases online and use a credit card instead of a debit card.
  • Only provide your payment information on sites that are encrypted and secure. Look for the https and padlock in the browser.
  • Purchase gift cards from a reputable source, such as the store website of known brands.
  • Have your packages delivered securely if you know you won't be home to accept them. Send them to your place of work or ask a neighbor to watch for deliveries.
  • Verify the sender before opening ecards by making sure that the sender's name is visible, and be wary if you are required to enter personal information in order to access the card. And especially watch for cards with an attachment that ends in ".exe" which could download a virus.
  • Install and update antivirus software regularly on all of your devices to keep your information safe.
  • Keep a record of your online purchases and check them against your account statements so you can report it immediately if there is a discrepancy. Check electronic statements regularly during the holiday season to look for fraudulent charges to your credit card, debit card, or checking account.
