Protecting your personal information is no accident
At Dime, we know a thing or two about protecting against online banking fraud.
Keeping your personal and account information secure is our first priority – you can help by practicing these “good security habits”(1):
- Never respond to unsolicited requests for your Social Security Number or financial data
- Shred credit card and ATM receipts before throwing them away
- Shred any pre-approved credit offers you receive, but don’t intend to use
- Check all credit card and bank statements for accuracy
- Avoid easy-to-figure out access and PIN codes. Never reveal your PIN to anyone
- Store your card number and PIN separately, and never write your PIN on your card
- Obtain a copy of your credit report yearly and check it for accuracy
- Use only secure Web sites when making online purchases. Secure pages begin with “https”
- Pay for online purchases by credit card to assure delivery and to limit your liability
