Customer Account Takeover

Customer Account Takeover is a form of identity theft where thieves gain access to a person's bank account and then use it to initiate fraudulent transactions. This can occur in a variety of ways, including tricking victims into revealing account information by impersonating a person of trust, or downloading malicious software by visiting an infected website. This can happen to anyone, consumers or businesses.

Helping our customers keep their accounts safe from cybercrime is a top priority at State Savings Bank. Use the educational information on this page to learn more about this growing crime and how to avoid being a victim.
