FRAUD ALERT

Please be aware that a few credit union members were paid with fraudulent checks drawn on Navy Federal Credit Union. The checks appear to be related to a Craig's list post that offers loan advances. A few credit union members apparently gave personal information to a Craig's list contact for loan advances and a check was sent to the member with their account numbers on the check. 

 

Please be cautious of giving out your personal and financial information !!!!

 

 

FRAUD PROTECTION CALL

1-800-472-3272

If you detect suspicious activity relating to your debit card and draft account please call 1-800-472-3272 to deactivate your debit card.

New debit cards can be issued instantly at all of our Branch locations.

Protecting our members from potential losses as a result of financial crime is very important to Naheola Credit Union. We communicate and work with several different agencies on an ongoing basis to protect our members from financial fraud. But, despite our best efforts to prevent fraud, it does occur. Additionally, we have increased and upgraded our fraud detection network through our data processor. Please be mindful of internet transactions and giving your debit card information over the phone to vendors.

Data breaches are occurring more frequently which has led to most if not all of the fraudulent transactions that have occurred not only at Naheola Credit Union but most every other financial institution as well.

If you would like to assist in stopping these occurrences, please notify your congressional representatives to Stop the Data Breaches! The Credit Union industry and other Financial institutions have been communicating our efforts to them for quite a while. The merchants have very little liability for a data breach. Contritely, most of the fraud occurs from intrusions on their databases and networks. If they shared more of the liability, maybe they would spruce up their security as all of the financial institutions have already done.

Please check your account daily and review your transactions. Contact Naheola Credit Union immediately if there are transactions you have not authorized. We pride ourselves on helping our members resolve these issues.
