Everyday SBT Banking Security Tips




  • Carry only necessary information with you. Leave your social security card and unused credits cards at home in a safe and secure location.
  • Make photocopies of vital information you carry regularly and store them in a secure place, such as a safe deposit box.
  • Make the move from paper checks to a SBT Debit MasterCard to enjoy more flexibility and reduce your fraud risk.
  • Replace paper invoices, statements and checks with electronic versions, if offered by your employer, bank, utility provider or merchant.
  • If you have free online account access with SBT Online Banking, you can reduce paper and enjoy more security by signing up for Bill Pay and free eStatements.
  • Shred documents containing personal or financial information with a cross cut shredder before discarding. Most fraud and identity theft incidents happen as a result of mail and garbage theft.
  • Review your credit report at least once a year, looking for suspicious or unknown transactions. You can get a free credit report once a year from each of the three major credit bureaus at www.annualcreditreport.com. For a small fee you can obtain a copy at any time directly from:

Equifax: 1-800-685-1111 or www.equifax.com

Experian: 1-888-397-3742 or www.experian.com

TransUnion: 1-800-916-8800 or www.transunion.com

  • Consider subscribing to a daily credit monitoring service, which can include identity theft insurance.
  • Place outgoing mail in a U.S. Postal Service mailbox to reduce the chance of mail theft.
  • Know your billing and statement cycles. Contact the company's customer service department if you stop receiving your regular bill or statement.
