To Protect Yourself

As a rule, never click on links in e-mails claiming to come from banks or other financial institutions. You should always surf directly to the bank's or financial institution's website instead of accessing your bank account from another website. Be suspicious of e-mails (or the page they link to) asking you to enter your password or other relevant information to your bank account. There have also been cases where computer viruses are used to intercept and collect sensitive information. Therefore, make sure that your computer has the latest updated virus protection software. Your operating system and internet browser should also be updated with the latest security updates.
