Crimes like identity theft, credit card fraud and other Internet-based
frauds are on the rise. At Windsor Federal Savings, we believe the
more you understand about how these crimes occur, the better equipped
you will be to take precautions to protect yourself.
Identity theft and account fraud happen when someone steals your
personal information in order to gain access to your money or to
obtain credit in your name. One method that is growing in popularity
is called “Phishing”. Phishing involves sending you seemingly
legitimate e-mails requesting your personal information. This is often
accomplished by asking you to verify or confirm confidential
information such as your account numbers, social security number,
passwords and other sensitive information. Several techniques are
employed to mislead you into believing the request is coming from
someone you already do business with, such as your bank.

account is in jeopardy if you do not update your account
As a customer of Windsor Federal Savings, the security of your
