Identity Theft and Phishing (Pronounced "fishing")
Don't let yourself be a victim of identity theft. Be suspicious of any emails, phone calls, or mail requests that ask for Social Security Numbers, credit card numbers, account numbers, passwords, or any other confidential information, even if these requests come from someone who says they represent a company you do business with. Many identity thieves fraudulently claim to represent your bank, credit card company, or investment firm in order to gain your trust and your confidential information.

Other Consumer Scams and Fraud
Winning lotteries or sweepstakes, "charities" or "organizations" asking for contributions, receiving a cashiers check for more than you requested when selling an item, or foreigners asking for help because of the restrictive rules and regulations of their countries—what do all these things have in common? They are all examples of scams. Find out more at these web sites:


Check 21
The world of checks is changing, thanks to a new law known as Check 21. Check clearing will soon become more efficient by allowing banks to make images of paper checks and send those images to the paying bank. Learn more about Check 21 and how it affects you and banks at the Federal Reserve web site:
