Fraud prevention begins with awareness.

Your personal information is a valuable commodity, and protecting it is key to your financial security. Educate yourself about how to stay secure, current scams, and what to do if you are a victim of identity theft.

Keeping your financial and personal information secure is a top priority at DuTrac. From Text Alerts for our checking account debit cards to credit cards with chip-enhanced technology, we are constantly working to provide the latest fraud protection tools and services.

You can also take several measures to protect your financial and account information from would-be hackers.

Minimize your risk

  • Keep your Social Security number safe. Don’t carry it in your wallet or write it on a check, and give it out only when necessary.
  • Always shred receipts, copies of credit applications, insurance, medical papers, financial statements, expired credit cards, or other sensitive documents.
  • Be on guard on the internet. Don’t click on suspicious links or open attachments from unknown senders.
  • Use strong passwords. Avoid short, easy-to-guess passwords, and change them regularly. Instead, use letters, numbers, and special characters for the most robust password.
  • Store your personal information in a secure location.
  • Protect your wallet, purse, and personal documents when at home or work.
  • Monitor your bank statements and credit reports. Keep an eye out for suspicious activity and credit inquiries. Check to make sure all information is accurate.

Below you will also find a collection of articles full of tips you can use to prevent fraud.
