How To Keep Your Money Safe

Yoakum National Bank and the Independent Bankers Association of Texas want to offer some tips to ensure the safety of your money.

  1. Keep a written log of your credit and debit cards issued by your financial institution. Notify the bank immediately if a card is lost or stolen. Never write your PIN on the back of your debit card.
  2. Regularly check account balances for accuracy and any suspicious activity. Contact the bank with any suspicious transactions on your account.
  3. Beware of any contact from an individual claiming to be from your financial institution who asks for account or personal information. Never provide this information unless you initiate the call.
  4. Always be aware of scam artists. Scam artists often target elders.
  5. Secure mobile phones and other devices that store sensitive account information. Activate the security code and lock features.
  6. Be cautious when using automated teller machines. Check your surroundings and proceed with caution.

If you have any questions about the safety of your money contact the bank.
