ID Theft and Phishing
Freedom Bank wants to make you aware of daily things you can do to protect yourself from ID theft. 

• Report lost or stolen cards immediately.

• Shred all materials in a home shredder that have important information on them such as your full name, date of birth, account numbers, etc. Individuals have had their identities stolen from “dumpster divers”.

• Never share your full Social Security number with any one through email. Email is not a secure method of transferring confidential information of ANY kind.

• Check your credit report at least annually to dispute any possible discrepancies. You can obtain a free yearly credit report by clicking here.

Our promise: Freedom Bank will NEVER contact you through email for confidential information such as your account number or Social Security number. If you receive such an email from us please call us immediately to notify us as this is a common tactic known as “phishing.” If we need to update such information about you we will contact you through more secure methods.

For more information on ID theft please visit the Federal Trade Commission.

Late last night we advised that there was a fake Freedom Bank website, as of this morning it has been taken down. The fake, or otherwise known as "spoofed" website was an attempt to lure customers to provide their personal information. Rest assured, Freedom Bank’s website is secure and there have been no known compromises to our customers or customer information. Please be sure that when visiting Freedom Bank's website, that the web address matches one of the following: https://freedombanknj.com or https://fbnj.com.
