Easy First Steps to Take

Keep your contact information up-to-date

Having correct contact information allows us to get a hold of you in case we detect fraud on your account. It also ensures your information isn’t falling into the wrong hands. Contact us if you’ve recently moved or have changed your phone number.

Make sure you are able to receive text alerts

In addition to Astra Bank contacting you by phone when suspicious transactions appear on your debit card, you also have the option of receiving text alerts. Learn more about fraudulent activity text alerts here.

Use Strong Passwords as well as enabling Two-Factor Authentication

A strong, unique password protects your account from hackers and keeps your separate accounts safe in case one of the websites you use is compromised. Two-factor authentication adds an extra layer of security by adding an additional login credential to access your account. It usually requires something that belongs to you, like a badge, token, or an authentication number from an app on your phone. This is one of the best ways to add security to your accounts. Many popular apps and websites such as Facebook, Google, and Apple have two-factor authentication as an option for your account.

Consider Benefits Checking from Astra Bank

Benefits Checking offers Cyberscout® Identity Theft Resolution as just one of its many benefits. This comprehensive protection helps restore your identity and includes immediate household family members.

Fake Check Scams

These scams typically involve the victim being asked to deposit or cash a large check and send a portion of the funds back to the scammer. The victim is told the amount is to cover fees, taxes, or other charges. However, once the check is found to be fraudulent the victim is left to deal with the full amount against their account.

General Safety Tips

  • Beware unsolicited calls or emails. If you didn’t initiate or are not expecting the email or call, there is a good chance it is fraudulent. If you believe it could be legitimate, reach out to a trusted source and verify before responding to the initial communication.
  • Urgency or scare tactics are massive red flags. Scammers want to get your information and access to your funds as quickly as possible to avoid detection. If you feel pressured to make a decision quickly or lose out on the chance to win a lot of money or are threatened with jail time or legal consequences, then take a deep breath and realize these are most likely scammers hoping you will make a rash decision.
  • Only use secure websites or sellers when purchasing online. Looking to purchase something online? Make sure you are buying from a reputable seller. Use a search engine to look up the business and see if there are any complaints. Finally, never input your payment information unless there is an https:// in the URL.
  • Treat your personal information with care. Any time you share personal information online, that information could be used by advertisers, data-miners, or scammers. Never share your information with just anyone and take caution from anyone asking for sensitive info.
  • Review your privacy settings. Many social media websites offer the customization of who can view your profile and information. Make sure to take advantage of these settings to make sure only trusted friends, family, and acquaintances have access to you online.
