Basic online fraud prevention

Not sure if what you do online is safe from prying eyes? Especially when it comes to online banking?

The banks feel your pain, and that might explain why TD Bank published a fraud prevention quiz with these five true/false questions:

  1. If your bank needs to contact you, they may email you and ask you for your account information.
  2. The anti-virus and anti-spyware software on your computer is sufficient to protect your personal information.
  3. There are simple clues to figure out whether or not a website is safe
  4. Sending an e-mail money transfer gives you the same security as online banking.
  5. It’s not as important to be vigilant about transactions in stores because most fraudsters have moved online.
