As your trusted financial partner, our commitment extends beyond offering top-notch banking services; we also prioritize safeguarding your hard-earned money. Fraud prevention is a shared responsibility, and we want to empower you with the knowledge to protect your fi nances. Here are some proactive steps and insights to help you steer clear of potential fraud:

  1. Stay Informed: Being aware is the first line of defense. Regularly check your account statements, keep an eye on transactions, and set up alerts for any unusual activity. If you notice anything unfamiliar, contact us immediately.
  2. Secure Your Personal Information: Treat your personal and financial information like gold. Never share sensitive details such as passwords, PINs, or account numbers over the phone, through email, or on social media. First Westroads Bank will never ask for this information through these channels.
  3. Use Strong, Unique Passwords: Strengthen your online security by using complex passwords that combine uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols. Avoid using easily guessable information such as birthdays or names. Update your passwords regularly.
  4. Be Wary of Phishing Attempts: Phishing is a common tactic used by fraudsters. Be cautious of unsolicited emails, messages, or calls requesting personal information.

By incorporating these practices into your financial routine, you play a vital role in creating a secure banking experience. Remember, your financial well-being is our top priority, and together, we can build a fortress against fraud.
