Fight Fraud with SHAZAM BOLT$
Written by Denise Becker, Leighton State Bank’s expert in Retail Banking.
A customer was in today explaining to me how their accounts have been hacked multiple times. She asked me what she can do when it comes to securing her accounts at Leighton State Bank. I asked her if she had the Shazam Bolt$ app. She did not.
What is Shazam Bolt$?
