Managing Your Business Transactions
You may not be a computer hacker, but your Internet banking transactions can be hacked if you are not paying attention to managing your company’s finances. If your Internet banking transaction is done through the use of your credit card, this is even more likely since that kind of payment information is stored on your credit card and not in your bank account.
A hacker can take the same information from your Internet banking account and use it to make unauthorized purchases. The most common way is by using your card at online stores or gas stations. You will not know it is happening until you see the credit card statement and your balance go up dramatically. The credit card company does not usually notify you unless the purchase was fraudulent.
Another common way an Internet banking transaction can be hacked is by giving information over the Internet to someone you do not know. This can be done in the course of your normal banking activities. You can give a bank account number to a friend to help them with an account. The problem with this is that the person has access to your money. You never know if the person will use the account information in order to open another bank account in your name or run a charge off your account.
The most serious risk is if you share sensitive information over the Internet. There is no way to know who has access to this information and they may be using it for other purposes. If your banking transaction includes credit card numbers then you need to make sure that they are not given to anyone else.
You should never include your Social Security number on any online forms that ask for your financial information. This is because anytime someone uses your Social Security number to apply for a job, apply for insurance, or apply for loans, that will automatically get reported to the credit reporting agencies. The person who gets that credit report will have access to your personal data. They will also be able to access your credit rating which will reflect how responsible of a person you are as well as the amount of debt you have.
Identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes today. Many people have their identity stolen and the worst part is that most thieves are not caught.
It is up to you to make sure that your security system is updated. so that you know what information about your clients is being viewed by others.
The best way to protect yourself from identity theft is to be prepared when you are working with any information over the Internet. Even when you are making your first deposit, you should go back to the bank and make a withdrawal. That way, if a thief is ever caught, they will be unable to access your money.
Once you know where your money is going, you need to make sure that it is not going to someone who is trying to access your account information. You can protect yourself by making sure that all of the money in your account is held in a safe place. This will also prevent you from having to pay out more than the actual balance of the money if you get a charge off.
You can also use software programs that can help you manage your business transactions. There are online systems available which allow you to monitor all of your money transfers and account information.
It is a good idea to have all of your clients give you some form of identification when you are working with them. Even if they don’t have a driver’s license, you can still get their social security number so that you can check up on them as they go about their business.
Also, make sure that you have a record of all of their bank statements. This is needed for credit reports. This helps to show you what the credit score is for each of your clients.
