Tips to Protect Your Identity

  • Purchase an Identity Theft Plan through CyberScout™. LAFCU, in partnership with CyberScout, offers comprehensive FraudScout identity management and monitoring services. Don't wait until you are a victim! Protect yourself for as little as $45 per year (for the minimum plan), $75 per year (for a moderate plan), or $135 per year (for maximum coverage).
  • Review your financial statements and monitor transactions regularly
  • Order a free credit report at Annual Credit Report
  • Request that a free security freeze be placed on your credit file by contacting each of the three reporting agencies and/or contacting the FTC to receive additional information regarding security freezes
  • Never leave your device unattended when using online financial services
  • Lock your computer or mobile device whenever you leave it unattended
  • Never use public information or common names or phrases, birth dates, etc. to create your password
  • Do not reveal your password to anyone
  • Do not accept friend requests from people you do not know on social networking sites

In today's digital world, it's critical that you protect your identity; it's more than just keeping your ATM, credit and debit cards secure.
