Capital One - Maintaining Credit

Safety & Security.

Technology has definitely made banking more convenient in recent years. But it has also introduced some risks as criminals continually find new ways to use that same technology for more, shall we say, unscrupulous behaviour. You've worked hard to get and maintain a good credit score so it's important that you do whatever you can to protect it at all times. Simple things like signing your card as soon as you get it, keeping an eye on your statements, guarding your personal information and even checking your credit report once a year can go a long way to keeping your credit safe.
