 Some Tips to Prevent Identity Theft

  • Do not share personal, identifying information with anyone unless you know why they need it, how it will be used and if it will be shared.
  • Share your social security number only when necessary. 
  • Review the activity in your bank accounts and credit card accounts at least monthly to make sure there are no unauthorized transactions.
  • Do not reply to emails requesting personal information even if the emails appear to be from a trusted source. Legacy Bank will never use email to update or verify the personal information of its customers.
  • Obtain a copy of your credit report at least annually and make sure you recognize all of the accounts listed.
