Security

Security
The Braxton Group and related companies restrict access to nonpublic personal information about you to those employees who need to know that information to provide products or services to you. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with government standards to guard your nonpublic personal information.

Web site security
We have been successful in closing down several web sites designed to look like ours. These web sites were created in an effort to lure account holders into divulging confidential information in order to attempt a fraud. This type of fraud has been tried on a number of other banks, both large and small, and is not uncommon. We are taking this matter very seriously and monitoring the internet very carefully.

Fraud and Identity Theft Prevention

E-mail fraud

You may have heard of the term ‘phishing’. It refers to fraudsters ‘fishing’ for your personal and financial details to use for criminal purposes.

Criminals do this, for instance, by making identical copies of the web sites of reputable companies or firms. They may also send scam e-mails in the hope of tricking you into surrendering your personal information. Remember: the Braxton Group and related companies will never ask you for confidential information in this way!
