Here’s a quick tip that could really save your bacon!…
Set up withdrawal alerts on your bank account.
73% of Americans access their bank account through a computer or a mobile device.
According to the American Bankers Association, fraud against bank deposit accounts amounted to $19.1 billion in 2019.
And did you know that the FDIC doesn’t protect you from money stolen out of your account by a hacker?
Most banks today have a mobile application and even if they don’t, most of them allow you to set up text message alerts for any withdrawal over a certain amount.
For example, I have my mobile Chase Bank app set up to alert me on any withdrawal on my account over $1.
This applies to checks debit cards, or wire transfers. Setting up these alerts will allow you to spot and report fraudulent activity before the money has been siphoned into a cyber criminals account.
And here’s a bonus tip.
Make sure your bank login is set up with multi factor authentication so that even if these cyber criminals steal your credentials, they can’t get access to your money.
