Prevent Fraud this Holiday Season

Keep your accounts safe while shopping for the holidays!

Prevent Fraud this Holiday Season

November is here and everyone’s attention is now focused on the holidays. Have you already started shopping for gifts? More and more holiday shoppers are expected to research gift ideas and make purchases online. This growing phenomenon is leaving shoppers vulnerable to fraud now more than ever.

Holiday shopping online is convenient but it comes with risk…

  • 12.7 million U.S. adult fraud victims

  • 1 in 7 breach victims experience fraud

  • $14 billion fraud committed with existing credit cards

Don’t get us wrong, we’re not saying to not take advantage of the thing that is online shopping. Who wouldn’t rather stay in their pajamas on Cyber Monday than fight the crowds on Black Friday for a great deal?

Below is a list of tips to help you keep your identity safe this holiday season:

  • Shop on secure, trusted sites – leave suspicious websites immediately

  • Read retailer reviews before ordering or providing personal information

  • Keep only a few cards in use for easy notification when they’re lost or stolen

  • Review your accounts regularly for unauthorized use

NebraskaLand Bank’s main concern is keeping our customers safe. We have several products and services, such as: Mobile Banking, eStatements, account Alerts and more that will help keep your accounts monitored and protected. Visit with a personal banker today to see which products could be working for you.
