Identity Theft Prevention
Identity theft is one of the fastest-growing types of fraud, but consumers can take measures to protect from becoming a victim. Home Federal is here to help.
Criminals can steal your identity in many ways and new avenues are being invented all the time. Identity theft involves someone using your personal information: name, social security number, credit card, or even bank account numbers to open accounts or run up bills in your name.
Sometimes, the scheme can be as simple as a phone call or letter asking you to update your information. Do not disclose your personal and account information to anyone over the phone or by email. Home Federal Bank would never place a call to you requesting this information. If you think you may be a victim of identity theft, please contact your bank right away.
