Protecting Your Personal Information

Beware of Phishing Scams: Phishing attacks attempt to compromise consumers personal identity data and financial account credentials. These schemes use e-mail to lead unsuspecting consumers to counterfeit websites. These false websites are designed to trick recipients into divulging financial data such as credit card numbers, account usernames, passwords, and social security numbers. By hijacking the brand names of banks, e-retailers, and credit card companies, phishers often convince recipients to respond.

Please remember that Lincoln 1st Bank will not contact you asking for any of your personal financial data via e-mail. If you receive an e-mail of this sort, please do not respond to it. Please call us immediately at 973-694-0330.

Seven Practices for Safer Computing

Access to information and entertainment, credit and financial services, products from every corner of the world even to your work is greater than earlier generations could ever have imaged. Thanks to the Internet, you can order books, clothes or applications online; reserve a hotel room across the ocean; download music and games; check your bank balance throughout the day; or access your workplace from thousands of miles away.
The flip-side is that the Internet and the anonymity it affords also can give online scammers, hackers and identity thieves access to your computer, personal information, finances and more.

With awareness as your safety net, you can minimize the chance of an Internet mishap. Being on guard online helps you protect your information, your computer, even yourself. To be safer and more secure online, adopt these seven practices.

  1. Protect your personal information. Its valuable.
  2. Know who you’re dealing with.
