Identity Theft is a serious crime. It occurs when your personal information is stolen and used without your knowledge to commit fraud or other crimes. Identity theft can cost you time and money. It can destroy your credit and ruin your good name. Even if you have not been touched by identity theft, chances are you will be one day. Here are some of the most important trends you should be aware of to keep fraudsters from separating you from your money.
Phishing is the criminal attempt to acquire sensitive information such as usernames, passwords and credit card details by masquerading as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication. Phishing is typically carried out by email, directing users to enter personal financial details at a fake website whose look and feel are almost identical to a legitimate one.
This is a variation of phishing. With phishing, criminals might send a single, mass email to thousands of people. Spear phishing attacks are customized and sent to a single person at a time. The spear phishing email usually contains personal information such as your name or some disarming fact about your employment. A spear phishing email usually includes a link leading to a fake website that requests personal information. The phony email may contain a downloadable file. They often appear to come from an employer or another seemingly legitimate source. But the file contains malware, and once downloaded to your computer, collects your personal information and transmits it to the criminal.
Vishing is the name for phishing attacks using the telephone. The term is a combination of voice and phishing, and is typically used to steal credit card numbers, bank account numbers and passwords. You might receive a phone call advising you that your credit card has been used illegally, and to call a certain number to “verify” your account number.
Smishing is yet another variation of phishing. The term is a combination of SMS (Short Message Service, the technology used in text messaging) and phishing. In this scam, the fraudster uses cell phone text messages to lure you to a website or perhaps to use a phone number that connects to an automated voice response system.
Dearborn Federal Savings Bank will never send an email, text message or leave a voice message asking for personal information or send you to a special site to “update personal information.” If you receive any such requests from someone claiming to be a representative of Dearborn Federal Savings Bank, contact our Customer Service Department at 800-809-3372, option 4.
Card skimming attempts to hijack your personal information and your identity by tampering with ATM machines. Fraudsters set up a device that is capable of capturing the debit card magnetic stripe and key pad information from the ATM, then sell this information to criminals who use it to create new cards with your account numbers.
Fake check scams use technology to create realistic cashier’s checks. These checks are used by scammers to pay for online purchases (such as through Craig’s List), some form of lottery that you are told that you won, mystery shopper funding and other fraudulent activities. The scam always involves you accepting the fake cashier’s check (or other type of check) which is more than the purchase price of payment due to you, and then you sending the difference in a separate check or via wired funds to the scammer. You keep the worthless fake check and the scammer keeps your real check or wired funds with your real money. Click here to view the FBI Fraud Alert.
