How to prevent cybercrime and fraud
Verbally verify all payment instructions
It’s a simple step, and one of the most important precautions you can take to prevent fraud.
Leverage multi-factor authentication
Rather than just requiring your password to access your accounts, require an additional credential, such as a code, facial recognition or an answer to a security question.
Create unique, complex usernames—not just passwords
Passwords should be complex, unique and not be used on multiple sites. They should not contain any personal information or answers to your security questions.
