In today's digital world, it's important to stay vigilant about protecting your personal and financial information online. As a Capital on Tap customer, you trust us with sensitive data like bank account numbers, credit card details, and more. While we take every precaution to keep your data safe, scammers are always looking for new ways to trick unsuspecting customers and steal personal information. To help you identify and avoid potential scams targeting Capital on Tap customers, here are some best practices to keep in mind.
What to look out for
Watch out for phishing emails
Scammers may send emails designed to look like they are from Capital on Tap asking you to log in, update your information, or provide account and credit card details. Always double check the sender's email address, and never click on links from suspicious emails.
Beware of fraudulent phone calls
Scammers may call you posing as Capital on Tap support staff requesting personal information or account access. Remember, legitimate Capital on Tap employees will never ask for your password, one-time passcodes, or other sensitive details over the phone. Hang up immediately if you receive a suspicious call.
Avoid online advertising scams
Be cautious of online ads in search engines (e.g. Google or Bing) that claim to be our official website. Always make sure you’re on our genuine website https://www.capitalontap.com/ before entering any information. Fraudulent websites will often ask for credit card information when signing in - something we never do.
Steps to stay protected
Never share sensitive information
Never provide your password, PIN or one-time passcodes. Our staff will never ask you for these details.
