A person that has been a victim of fraudsters could mean that he or she is not fully protected by his or her bank. We suggest that you must know some steps involved in avoiding credit and debit card fraud to protect your pin numbers, card information, and other private information. Following are some simple tips that could help you keep the thieves at bay.
Use a paper shredder
After reviewing your receipts and bank statements, shred them right away.
Use different pin codes
If you have a few cards, don't use the same pin code on every card.
Don't use personal details as passwords or pins
This kind of information was easy to guess, so don't use your birth date or the first 4-5 numbers of your phone number as your password or pin code.
Don't save passwords on your desktop
Never allow your computer to save your passwords.
Beware of spying eyes
When you are going to withdraw some money at a cash machine in public, be wary of your surroundings and cover up your pin number when typing.
Avoid talking to your bank in public
Always make sure that you're alone when talking to them and see to it that no one is overhearing your conversation with them. As much as possible don't make phone calls to your bank in a public place.
Be extra careful on your surroundings
If you're in a public place such as an internet cafe when doing online banking, be vigilant on your surroundings.
Install anti-virus software
Your personal computer, as well as your mobile devices, needs anti-virus software to stay away from malicious threats. Don't also forget to keep your software updated.
Don't be afraid to confront callers
There were a lot of phone scams today, so when someone calls you and claiming they were representatives from your trusted bank, don't be afraid to ask questions such as why they were calling and such. Or you could also look for the bank's number on their official website and call them on that number to confirm such calls.
FLEX, a credit union core processor, integrates with Advanced Fraud Solution for check fraud prevention.
(Newswire.net -- October 27, 2016) Sandy, Utah -- FLEX CREDIT UNION TECHNOLOGY SELECTS ADVANCED FRAUD SOLUTIONS TO INTEGRATE INDUSTRY-LEADING CHECK FRAUD DETECTION SOLUTION WITHIN ITS TELLER CAPTURE PLATFORM.
Industry-leading solution providers for the financial services sector join forces to combat check deposit fraud
FLEX announces a partnership to integrate its credit union core processing platform with Advanced Fraud Solutions’ (AFS) fraud detection tools. The partnership unites two industry leaders in the perennial fight against check fraud that continues to generate significant losses at credit unions across the nation.
A recent report produced by AFS found that while check volumes continue to decline, the exponential growth in online and mobile banking coupled with the adoption of EMV technology to combat plastic card fraud has helped breathe new life into fraud schemes involving paper checks.
FLEX customers will now be able to automatically screen checks presented at the teller line for fraud. In addition to detecting counterfeit checks, accounts with insufficient funds, and closed accounts, AFS’ solution helps financial institutions detect duplicate deposits previously made through remote deposit or mobile banking, which is a growing problem for the financial services industry as a whole.
“Check fraud continues to plague every financial institution, especially smaller institutions that may not understand the severity of the threat they face until they experience a loss,” says Lawrence Reaves, CEO of North Carolina-based AFS. “Our partnership with FLEX seamlessly embeds our award-winning fraud solution within the teller platform and provides credit union employees with the real-time information they need to make a fully-informed decision as to whether they should accept or reject a deposit. With less time spent processing routine deposits, tellers can refocus their efforts on improving the customer service experience,” adds Reaves.
