And if we’ve said it once, we’ve said it a million times: reusing passwords is really, truly a terrible idea. So don’t! Watch out for spearphishers.
Unsolicited communications that try to get personal information out of you, or send you to a site that wants your account credentials, should be greeted with your hairiest of eyeballs. Don’t click on links or download attachments from unfamiliar emails. Keep an eye on your bank account and credit card statements for suspicious activity.
See something weird? Call your bank.
