Veterans Day

This Veterans Day we salute every serviceman and woman for making the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. These men and women dedicated their lives in the continuous pursuit to keep our country free. As Americans, we realize that freedom is not free, for many have laid down their lives defending this country. For this, we salute all of our service members and say Thank You” for all that you do!

Did you know….

The History of Veterans Day: Veterans Day was originally established as a U.S. legal holiday to honor Armistice Day – the end of World War I, which officially took place on November 11, 1918.

As the holidays approach, it is important that we share with you tips to protect yourself throughout the season.

Tips for Safe Holiday Shopping Online and In-Stores:

Guard your Personal Information: Be alert to the types of information being gathered to complete certain transactions. Make sure the information requested is only what is needed to complete the transaction. Only fill out required fields on checkout forms and check the website’s privacy policy. Understand how your information will be stored and used.

Practice Safe Payment Options: Credit cards are generally the safest option because they provide 100% protection against fraudulent activities, which means you are not liable if your card is stolen or used without your knowledge.

Consider alternate options to pay for your merchandise, such as onetime or multiuse disposable credit cards, gift cards, or store cards.

Save all receipts: Save records of your in-store and online transactions, including the product description, price, online receipt, terms of the sale, and copies of email exchanges with the seller. Read your bank and credit card statements as soon as you get them to make sure there aren’t any unauthorized charges. If there is a discrepancy, call your credit union and report it immediately.
