If you’re a Chase bank customer, you’re right to feel powerless right now.
Hackers broke into JPMorgan’s computer systems and stole more than 80 million customers’ personal information, including their names, emails, physical addresses, and phone numbers.
Anyone who used online banking or the Chase smartphone app were affected.
It’s time to play defense.
1. Watch out for scammers. Hackers now have enough information to contact you, and they know you’re a JPMorgan Chase (JPM) customer.
Don’t trust any phone calls, emails, or letters claiming to be from the bank. Instead, directly call the number on your bank card or a previous statement.
Scam artists will seek even more information from you — like your birthday, Social Security number or bank account number — so they can tap into your account and steal your money.
