Let’s fight fraud together

Note: This is a sponsored post created in collaboration with CHASSE and #WeAllGrow Latina Network

As a tech expert, my friends are always asking for advice and I’m always really happy to assist anyone, especially when they suspect they’ve been victims of some kind of scam. I have always been really careful when it comes to protecting my credit cards, bank accounts, etc. but unfortunately you never know what can happen. Thankfully, my mom always told me what to do to protect my credit cards: hide your PIN number, don’t write it down, if you think someone has taken your credit card number call your bank immediately.

I’m happy to partner with CHASE to share a few important tips with you. If we all work together, we will be able to fight fraud:

The steps described by Brittney Castro in the video are really easy to follow and it won’t take you that much time. I have personally followed all these tricks since I got my first bank account. It’s important to activate the alerts on your account every time there is some kind of suspicious activity. Trust me, that has saved me a couple of times already. Make sure your information is always up to date, so you can receive text messages in case of an emergency.

Another tip my mom passed down to me is to check my bank account every single day. Every time I detect something suspicious, I will call my bank right away to make sure where that charge is coming from. If your credit card has been stolen, make sure you report it right away. That’s why CHASE’s fraud campaign is good for you to consider: they monitor fraud 24/7 and they will make sure they ship you a new credit card right away if it gets stolen.

It is Hispanic Heritage Month and I am pretty sure you heard other financial tips that were passed down to you from older generations in your household. Share any other tips you might have! You can also learn more on CHASE’s anti fraud website.
