Protect Your Identity
PROTECT YOUR IDENTITY
Reliance Bank works diligently to protect our customers from identity theft. We use a combination of safeguards to protect customer information, such as employee training, strict privacy policies, and rigorous security standards. Customers can help protect themselves by following a few simple precautions.
Reliance Bank encourages customers to follow some simple steps to avoid becoming a victim:
- Shred or tear up statements and other personal information. Criminals may be able to get access to your accounts and personal information by “dumpster diving” (retrieving canceled checks, deposit receipts or bank statements from dumpsters or trash bins).
- Keep an eye out for any missing mail, particularly account statements and bills that do not arrive when expected.
- Review your monthly accounts regularly for any unauthorized charges through the Internet, phone or ATM statements.
- Order free copies of your credit report once a year from each of the credit reporting agencies to ensure accuracy. Go to the Federal Trade Commission’s authorized web site
A special website is available that offers consumer tips and steps for victims. There’s also an online ID quiz that can help determine how prone one may be to identity theft. Click here to visit the site:http://www.protectyouridnow.org
