|Reckonize Art are aware of security issues
surrounding on-line purchasing and realise the concerns that
customers rightly have about credit card fraud and identity
theft. Our sites are accordingly secure and make full use
of up to date security measures such as SSL (secure socket
layer) server pages. In addition the sections below give advice
on maintaining security on-line whilst visiting or buying
from ecommerce sites.
Check the security of eCommerce and eBanking sites
Always keep Your Identity Secure, counterfeit (or
spoof) sites are often used by fraudsters to lull you into
a false sense of security. Following these three steps should
ensure that the site you think you are banking with is a genuine
Step 1: Always type the
internet banking or ecommerce URL directly into your browser.
By typing directly into your browser instead of following
links, you greatly reduce your chances of being duped by a
Step 2: Check for 'https' and the
lock. Genuine secure sites have addresses that start
with 'https' and display a padlock icon in the bottom section
of your internet browser.
Step 3: Double click that lock.
Double clicking the lock icon that appears in the bottom section
of your internet browser brings up information about the lock
that can help you confirm that the site is genuine. If the
lock is not within its valid dates or has been issued to a
website that you do not recognise, do not enter your details.
Always logout of secure sites
Never leave your computer unattended when logged in to a secure
session (like internet banking). Ensure that you log-out properly
when you have finished your internet banking session.
Be extra careful when using computers in public places
As you cannot be certain about the security of public wireless
networks or computers in public places (like a library or
internet café) you should be cautious about using internet
banking services in these situations. Never change your security
details while using a public wireless network or a public
Watch out for fraudulent (or 'phishing') e-mails
Phishing is a fraud technique commonly used to attempt to
trick people into revealing their username and password to
Here is how a phishing scam typically works: The fraudster
sends out a fake e-mail that has been designed to look like
it comes from a reputable source. This fake e-mail asks
for security details or directs customers to a counterfeit
banking or ecommerce site. At the counterfeit site, the
fraudster asks the customer to enter their complete security
details - password, security questions, user name... the
sky is the limit. These stolen security details are then
used to commit fraud. Reckonize Art will never ask
you for your username or password.
If you receive an e-mail requesting your security details
do not reply and do not follow the instructions even if
the e-mail suggests that you need to take immediate action
to stop your account being frozen. These are just tricks
that the fraudster is using to manipulate you in to giving
away your vital details.
