Increased Card Security
We have increased our card fraud security to better serve you.
Credit and debit card fraud affects each of our members, primarily because the credit union must absorb any losses incurred as a result of fraud. This, in turn, affects what we are able to return to our members in interest on deposits, and on loan rates and fees. Fraud also inconveniences you, our member-owners.
What can you do to help protect yourself?
- Provide us with your most current contact information, including your cell phone number and email address, so that we can easily reach you if potential fraud were to occur on your card.
- Call us if you will be traveling out of state, internationally, or outside of your normal usage area to ensure your transactions will be processed during your travel.
- Contact us immediately if you believe your Visa credit or debit card, ATM card or PIN has been lost, stolen or compromised.
- Regularly review your statement(s) or account activity in online banking for unauthorized transactions and contact us immediately if you discover fraudulent activity.
