Scott State Bank would like to wish everyone a happy holiday season.
During this holiday shopping season, we would like to remind you to:
- only use legitimate sites when shopping online,
- always use a secure network,
- be leery of skimming devices,
- limit what information you share online and
- always review and check your statements and credit reports.
This is also a good time to make sure your contact information is updated and respond to fraud alerts promptly. And, keep an eye on your mailbox and shred junk mail such as pre-approved offers for credit and other mail that has your information printed on it.
These reminders will help guide you safely through the holiday fraud season!
ALERT: Washington Proposes IRS Bank Account Reporting
A recent proposal in Washington would require banks to report to the IRS on the inflows and outflows of personal and business accounts. Under the proposal, Scott State Bank would be required by the government to report your account information to the IRS.
We care about you and your privacy and want you to know about this potential change proposed by Washington policymakers. If you want to learn more about these issues or share your opinion with Congress, visit banklocally.org/privacy.
