A little precaution can go a long way to securing your online banking experience!
Online banking is big business. Which makes you a very big target for online scammers. So next time you get an email telling you need click on a link and login to your bank to access your account to verify data and information, DOUBLE CHECK THE email address. Banks will not use an email that's ends with a yahoo, gmail, or an IP address. More importantly they will never ask you for information via email!! Instead open up a separate browser window and login the your bank by typing in the bank's URL. In this way you can avoid cleverly disguised phishing pages.
