We, consumers, likely know the steps to take to prevent fraud - but we often don't act until it's too late

Even though it might put us at risk, we avoid learning about fraud because it's uncomfortable, and even painful.

People tend to think protecting from fraud is complicated, that fraud would never happen to you or there's nothing that can be done to help prevent fraud, But the truth is, you can help protect yourself from fraud with a few simple steps.


1 - Sign Up for Account Alerts

Ask your bank to alert you to activity in your accounts -- and ask to receive texts in addition to emails because you often see them more quickly.

2 - Switch to Online Statements

Choose to get your statements online instead of through the mail because the online versions have more security controls built in. Online access also allows you to check credit and debit card sites every few days to look for any transactions you don't recognize. A few minutes each week can help relieve hours of unnecessary stress later.

3 - Guard against Email and Phone Scams

Be wary of emails--even official-looking ones--or calls that ask you for passwords, account numbers and other information that can be used for fraud.

4 - Get Savvy with Passwords

Secure your information by using the lock feature and a password on your smartphone or laptop. Use a combination of numbers, letters and symbols to create strong passwords -- and change them regularly.

5 - Skip the Swipe with a Chip-Embedded Card

Take advantage of cards with embedded chip technology because they add another layer of security when paying at retailers with chip-card readers.

6 - Act Immediately if Something's Fishy

Don't delay when you get a text alert from the bank or you see a transaction you don't recognize.
