The big fraud case in the Bend area serves as a reminder about watching your bank accounts and credit cards. Tom Unger with Wells Fargo Bank says the good news about being a fraud victim is that you can usually get your money back if you report it to your bank or credit union: “Wells Fargo, and I’m sure many other banks have policies where consumers are not liable for a penny if they report suspicious or fraudulent activity on their card in a timely manner. So it’s important to monitor your account and play an active role in that. So even if you're not banking online go through your monthly statement you get in the mail and review that and if you see anything suspicious let your bank know." He says you should also shred all personal information; even credit card offers that you receive in the mail.
