Be Fraud Safe

As debit card fraud continues to rise, there are several ways you can protect yourself from becoming a victim of identity theft. Recently, Kroll Managing Director Tarun Bhatia was quoted in Money Today, discussing ways you can protect yourself from falling prey to these types of threats.

"Have strong passwords, keep changing your bank-related passwords at regular intervals, and prefer complex strong passwords," says Bhatia, Managing Director in Kroll’s Investigations and Disputes practice. "And don't have the same password for each bank account. Change the password that your bank has given you. Also change the password if you hear about any data theft. Don't use passwords that are easy to predict, such as date of birth. Use a mix of numbers, alphabets, and special characters."
