Online fraud practices are on the rise. A common technique that is being used to obtain identity information is website cloning. Website cloning copies an existing and legitimate website. Fraudsters can then modify the cloned website in ways that can trick innocent consumers into submitting their personal information.
In an effort to make sure our members practice safe methods when logging in to our online banking website, we’d like to share some important information regarding the items you should be looking for when logging in to your Online Banking account from our website, TexasTrustCU.org
When you first log in to the Online Banking portal, you should look for:
- The security lock on the URL. This indicates that the site is secure and that any information you provide is encrypted and transmitted securely.
- Our Texas Trust Credit Union logo and contact information at the top of the screen
- The Norton Secured logo and the NCUA logo at the bottom right corner of the screen
Once you enter your Online Banking ID, the next screen will feature your personally selected security image.
Scammers work hard trying to gain personal information. We want to ensure our membership uses safe practices when logging in to their Texas Trust accounts.
