Identity Theft Prevention

What steps can I take to help protect my identity?

Review the privacy policy of businesses you deal with.

Periodically review your credit report with the three major credit reporting agencies: Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion

Cross-cut shred all documents containing personal information before tossing them in with your garbage.

Review account statements and bills and make sure each transaction listed matches your records.

Use caution on the internet to avoid spoofed emails and websites.

Avoid being caught in a phishing scheme by declining to release unnecessary personal information to those who do not need to know the information.

When should I contact Bank of Ocean City?

If you ever have reason to believe the security of your account number, online banking username, password, Visa Debit Card or Visa Debit Card PIN has been compromised, please contact us immediately at one of our branch locations.

Contact a Bank of Ocean City Officer or Manager immediately if you have been approached online, on the phone or even in person by someone representing Bank of Ocean City but attempting to gain your personal information and have a reason to suspect the encounter was not official Bank of Ocean City business.

What should I do if I suspect my identity has been stolen?
