Identify ads that come as “offers of credit”
How can I tell if this is legitimate?
Stay alert. Does the document say, “This is not a check” or “Not affiliated with your financial institution”?
How did they get my information?
What should I do?
- Refrain from contacting the company if you’re not interested in the offer.
- Learn more about prescreened credit and insurance offers from this FTC article.
- Visit Citizens First Bank’s fraud prevention resources here.
