STOP and think! Your credit union will NEVER send
you an email or call you and ask you for account information or
any personal information related to your identity. So if you get
something that seems “fishy” – maybe it’s
“phishy” and you should NOT answer it. (Phishing is
an e-mail message or fake website used to obtain personal
account information – it can look legitimate.) Be wary of
phone scams as well.
If you’re not sure, CALL US.
Call our listed telephone number (or listed 800 number) and verify
that we are contacting you.
ARM yourself against thieves. Be
careful how and where you use checks, your debit or credit card,
or where you leave your receipts or statements. Shred or burn paper
that has personal information on it if you don’t need to keep
it. After examining your statement for accuracy, get rid of receipts!
PROTECT your passwords and Personal
LOOK at your account balances on
the internet or use Audio Teller to hear your balances. Pay attention
to your account.
BE YOUR OWN IDENTITY THEFT COP! Be
sure to report suspicious activity to your credit union immediately.
