We want you to be informed and prepared. We've put together a few resources to help you recognize the signs of fraud. Your financial security is our priority - watch our video series to remain vigilant and and learn how to protect your online accounts and personal information.
Account Takeover Scams
Commonly, account takeovers happen through phishing. This is when cybercriminals use misleading emails, social media posts, phone calls, texts, or DMs that lure you to click on a bad link, download a malicious attachment or share your information. If you take the bait, the hackers can get access to your device or account.
Credit & Debit Card Fraud
Credit and debit card fraud involves the unauthorized use of another person's card information to make purchases from their account or access their funds.
Card fraud occurs through a variety of channels: online scams, card or mail theft, and password harvesting are some of the most common. Know how to defend yourself and rest assured Envista is continually monitoring for threats and suspicious activity. As a conscientious consumer, there are a number of things you can do to protect yourself as well.
Be Careful with Your Card Information
- Carry only the cards you need so there is less for a potential thief to take and fewer cards you'll have to freeze if your wallet is lost or stolen.
- Utilize mobile wallet as a card backup.
- Shred documents containing personal information.
- Never give your account number to anyone on the phone unless you initiated the call to a company you know to be reputable.
Use Your Card Wisely
- Never sign a receipt leaving lines, such as the total, blank. The information on a blank receipt may be changed after you've already signed it. Drawing a line through any blank spaces may help.
- Watch your card during a transaction and make sure you get it back.
- Look for irregularities with an ATM, gas pump or other card reading device before using it, especially with the card slot. If it looks odd, it may be a skimmer used to capture your card information. If you notice it after you've inserted your card, alert the card issuer.
- Be cautious when using your cards online. Only enter information on websites you're 100 percent sure are legitimate or use a third-party site when you can.
Set Travel Alerts
If you plan to travel internationally or domestically, you can add travel notifications as an added safeguard. Setting a travel notice provides our fraud monitoring notice that your spending habits will change. This allows you to continue to use your cards on your trip while alerting if transaction happen outside of your travel plans. Please call 785-228-0149 and be sure to provide the location and dates of your travel, including layovers if you'll have connecting flights.
- Check Scams
- No one will over pay you and expect you to send money back. Checks can not be sent via email.
- Loan Scams
- You don't have to pay money up front for a loan, you should not have to return proceeds and they do not need your Online Banking passwords to deposit funds.
