Bank of America's online banking system allows customers to pay bills and make monetary transfers online between accounts or even to accounts at other banks. The online banking system also has a bill scheduling system that allows for recurring expenses to be paid automatically.

They are also advised to frequently check their accounts to see if any strange purchases have been made and to contact their bank if they feel they may be a victim of identity theft.
