How can you protect yourself?

To help ensure your safety when you bank online, we suggest the following guidelines:

  • Keep your contact information with the Bank up to date.  This ensures that we can notify you quickly if we notice anything unexpected with your account.
  • While using online banking, consider the tips at https://www.mvsb.com/online-banking/security/.
  • E-mail. Since email is not a secure form of communication we do not recommend using email to contact MVSB. Our website, www.mvsb.com, has forms that allow you to contact the bank in a secure manner. When using these forms, your information is encrypted, which means it is safe to enter personal information such as account numbers.
  • Be wary of phone calls, emails, websites and pop-up windows that ask for personal information, such as your birth date, social security number, passwords or account numbers. Meredith Village Savings Bank will never ask for this information via any of these methods. Our website address is www.mvsb.com . If an email, advertisement or pop-up directs you to a different address, don’t use it, and contact us as soon as possible.
  • Monitor your statement and transactions. Let us know immediately if you notice an unexpected or erroneous charge on your statement, or while reviewing your transactions online. In addition, if your regular statement doesn’t arrive when you expect it to, contact us as soon as possible.
  • Monitor your credit report. You are entitled to an annual copy of your credit report from the three major credit reporting agencies. To get these, visit www.annualcreditreport.com.

What do you do if you suspect fraud or identity theft?

Please contact us as soon as possible if you notice any of the following:

  • Questionable account activity
  • You did not receive your statement(s)
  • Your debit card or checks are lost or stolen
  • You’ve encountered a fake email, website or pop-up window, especially if you responded to any of them with personal information.
