When I click on the Pay Your Bill Online link, I get a message that there is a problem with the website’s security certificate. Why?
Jones-Onslow EMC is protecting the online bill payment site with a VeriSign Secure Site Pro Extended Validation (EV) Certificate, which is the strongest SSL encryption available at this time. We have found that some computer browsers need to be updated to use this type of certificate. You can do this by accessing https://extended-validation-ssl.verisign.com and waiting for the page to appear. This is a website that Verisign has created to update browsers that do not have knowledge of the EV Certificate. This update will occur in the background and you will not be required to do anything. Browsers currently supported with SSL encryption for JOEMC’s online bill payment include Microsoft Internet Explorer (Window OS) and Mozilla’s Firefox (Windows OS and Mac OS). Both browsers can be downloaded for free.
What if I do not receive the email to complete the registration?
If you do not receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org within several minutes of registering, please check your junk or spam folder as some email programs may think it is spam. If you find the email in one of these folders, please open the email and complete the steps. If you do not find the email, call customer service at (910) 353-1940 or 1 (800) 682-1515 and they can email your login information to the email address supplied at registration.
What type of security is on this site?
We use secure sockets layer (SSL) to secure e-commerce transactions. SSL encrypts your information so that no one can access it while it travels the Internet. Users of high-security browsers, such as Internet Explorer 7 and Firefox 3, will notice a green address bar which indicates the Extended Validation SSL Certificate we have purchased to secure our Pay Your Bill Online website.
