Attackers are increasing their fraud efforts as we deal with COVID-19. Stay safe from e-transfer fraud by following these best practices.

Register for Auto Deposit 
Having funds automatically deposited into your account removes the risk of a criminal intercepting the deposit email.

Use Answers that are not Easy to Guess
Ensure the answer to your question cannot be easily guessed or found on social media.  If the notification is intercepted, it will be harder for a criminal to answer and steal the funds.

Do not put the Answer to the Security Question in the Message Box
Only share the answer via a secure channel (e.g. in person or over the phone).

Protect your Email's Security
Be cautious of phishing links.  Don’t stay logged in when you’re away from your computer.  Use strong passwords that are difficult to guess.

Register for Online Banking Email or Text Alerts
Immediately notify Cambrian if you sense anything suspicious about your transaction.
