I'm looking for resources, websites, experiences about bank security. Are they all the same? Is there nothing that can be done to secure your account except never use an atm?
I shred all personal information, I never give out my ss#. I use my ATM debit/visa only for deposits at my bank branches (maybe one purchase every 6 months), I never withdraw money with it, it is never used at an ATM that is not my bank branch.
At some point I assume my card was skimmed
. False deposits and withdrawls were made to and from my checking account, the credit card part of the card was never used. This has been reported to my bank and the police, I'm just looking for feedback on what further action I need to take to protect myself.
I see that WaMu cards are the easiest to forge
, but is switching to one of the evilest banks, Bank of America, my only choice? I switched to WaMu to get away from Citibank, and now I feel they too have screwed me.
Can I blame my bank for this?
Is changing to an evil bank the answer?
