It can feel like every day the media reports on new scams, identity theft and other fraudulent activity. The nuisances in discrepancies between each activity are never ending. Needless to say, superannuation is not immune to this crime.
Identity theft occurs when someone wrongfully obtains your personal information to carry out fraudulent activity, like accessing your superannuation account and attempting to make a withdrawal. Fraudsters are acting in many ways trying to get your attention and in turn access your details, some of which include:
- Targeted emails
- Password tracking
- Personalised calls or direct mail
At Christian Super, we are committed to helping you protect your super and we have secure measures in place to ensure your super is safe. However, there are simple steps you can take to reduce the risk of identity theft on your account.
