CardValet

This smartphone app allows you to manage your Debit Card wherever you are. Turn your card ON or OFF, set locations where it can be used, and more. Receive real-time alerts each time a registered card is used, which makes detecting fraud easier.

Monitor Accounts

Monitor your accounts frequently

If you wait for your monthly statements to arrive, it may be too late. Instead, routinely monitor your bank and credit accounts by enrolling for online banking or mobile banking.

Check Your Credit Score

You're entitled to one report from each of the three credit bureau reports (Equifax, Experian and TransUnion) every twelve months through www.AnnualCreditReport.com.

Business Account Security

Corporate Account Takeover is a type of business identity theft in which a criminal entity steals a business’s valid online banking credentials.

Never Give Out Personal Information

No legitimate entity, neither the police nor bank personnel, will ever ask you for your Account or Personal Identification Number (PIN). This is true in person, on the phone, and by email. If you are ever suspicious, contact your SNBT banker for verification.

Keep Good Records

Keep a record of all of your ATM, Debit, and Credit Cards.

Maintain a file of your account numbers, card numbers, expiration dates, and issuing bank's 800 numbers. If your card or wallet is ever stolen, you'll be able to contact them and provide the necessary information.

Take Action

If you discover unauthorized use, or if your Credit or Debit Card number is stolen, report the loss before your card is used. You won't be responsible for charges you did not authorize.
