On Tap This Month: Online Holiday Shopping 

While for most of us this is the season of giving, for the world’s cyber criminals it’s a time when online shoppers are at their most vulnerable. Don’t let seasonal scams ruin your holiday.

Secure Holiday Shopping Quick Tips

  • Make sure you’re on a site with a valid SSL certificate - it should have https in the web address, not http.
  • Avoid making purchases over public Wi-Fi.
  • Be wary of unsolicited emails, texts, social media pleas or ads that contain malicious links or attachments, especially donation requests from potentially fraudulent charities.
  • Use credit cards or a third-party payment service like PayPal; debit card fraud can compromise your checking account.
  • Use unique passwords for each website--the longer and more complicated, the better.

If You Think Your Online Security Has Been Compromised:

  • Check your account for any suspicious charges.
  • Request a WSECU representative to close any account that may have been affected.
  • Change any passwords that may have been stolen, and avoid reusing others.
  • Report the incident to the police as well as the Federal Trade Commission and the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center.
