Identity theft occurs when someone uses your personal information — such as your name, Social Security Number or credit card account number — without your permission to commit fraud or other crimes. You may not even realize that you are a victim until you review your credit report or a credit card statement.
E-mail sent over the internet can be intercepted by others, and it can be used to infect your computer with dangerous viruses. Use caution with attachments and be suspicious of any e-mail that asks you to provide personal information.
Every day criminals are targeting bank customers and their online transactions in order to commit fraud. Your financial information may be at risk if these organizations are successful in compromising your business or personal computer.
