Checking your Bank Account Weekly

How often do you currently check your bank account?  Only when the statement comes in or, for some of us, even longer.  Nothing is more frustrating than thinking you have money in your account only to have your card declined while you are out shopping due to someone getting to your account first.

Today it seems, just about everyone has their information out on the dark web due to the hacking events we hear everyday on the news.  But what about the ones we don’t hear?  Most of the time, the hacking has taken place long before you are notified.

One easy habit to get into is to check you bank account every week for any discrepancies.  I have gotten into the habit of checking my account as part of my morning routine.  That way I can catch any suspicious activity before it ruins my day and I also know my bank balance.
