Face your fears, open your statements.


As we shop for the perfect gifts this holiday season it is easy to swipe your card and be on your way.  Whether it’s a debit or credit card you’re swiping, it can be scary to see how quickly the amounts add up.  Don’t let yourself become a victim of overdraft fees, empty accounts and charges that you didn’t authorize.

With eStatements and online banking you are just a few clicks away from seeing your card activity. Routinely checking these can help you decide if your neighbor around the corner really needs that candle you picked up for them or if a friendly holiday greeting card would be sufficient. These routine checks can also help you be on top of a compromise to your credit/debit card or account. The longer an issue has been going on the more difficult it can be to resolve.

If you notice unauthorized charges to your account you should contact your financial institution immediately and they can help you take the proper steps to protect your accounts.
