How do I prevent identity theft?

There are important steps you should take to protect your information:

  • Protect your PIN and passwords—keep them safe and secret
  • Never give out personal or financial information over the phone, through mail, email, or online unless you have initiated the contact or know who you're dealing with
  • Always report lost or stolen cards, cheques, or debit cards immediately
  • Notify us or the police of suspicious activity
