Every day, hundreds of people are after your information. In August, 2005, nearly 14,000 phishing attempts were reported, and that doesn’t even count the unreported ones. Identity theft as a whole has claimed 27 million victims in five years, with over $5 billion in out of pocket expenses for consumers.
Fortunately, you can protect yourself. What’s even better, it’s not rocket science.
CU*Secure is here to provide you with basic information about that very topic: what to do to guard against phishing, and what to do if you’ve fallen victim.
The CU*Secure contributers work in the credit union industry every day, dealing with phishing and account fraud all the time. We know this stuff, and it’s the information we use ourselves.
