Interac e-Transfer is an effective and secure way to send and receive money, but it’s always a good idea to protect yourself from fraudulent activity like phishing scams. Try these simple steps to make transferring money even safer.

  1. Review your account activity regularly to ensure that all transactions are legitimate. An effective way to monitor is through our Alerts system, which are account activity and security alerts sent directly to your phone or email. Set them up through the Alerts tab on online or mobile banking.
  2. Choose the alerts that suit your needs from the security, balance, activity and payment alerts. Be sure to set up the e—Transfer Recipient Added alert and the Withdrawal alert.
  3. Consider setting up the Interac e-Transfer AutoDeposit service so that you won’t have to wonder if that Interac e-Transfer link you received is legit or not. You can have money sent via Interac e-Transfer automatically deposited into your bank account, without any additional steps. You save time and foil any phishing attempts to access your email.

It’s that easy to make sure you’re doing your part to keep your finances safe and secure.
