Avoiding Fraud During a Pandemic
The US Secret Service is investigating a wave of unemployment fraud. Click for more information, or to report State Unemployment Fraud
CO-OP Financial Services, one of our card partners, has received reports about an increase in phishing scams targeting members. In these scams fraudsters are leveraging text messages or phone calls to reach out to members, often under the guise that the member’s card is blocked. After the member responds to the correspondence, the fraudster looks to ‘authenticate’ the member by asking for personally identifiable information (PII). Once this data has been obtained the fraudster may take further actions, including changing a PIN or using travel notifications. This is followed by fraudulent activity, often at ATMs. We want to help keep your money safe, especially now. Please report any attempts to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Reduce the risk of falling victim to fraudulent phone calls and text messages by following these steps:
Be aware – legitimate businesses do not make unsolicited calls for personal, sensitive information. If you receive an unsolicited call asking this, it is probably a scam.
Don’t give in to pressure – Many times the caller will pressure or try and scare you into giving your personal information. If so, simply hang up.
Don’t answer phone calls from unknown numbers. Valid callers will leave a message.
Don’t respond to unverified SMS text asking you to call your financial institution. Text messages from never contain hyperlinks or requests for confidential information.
Stay calm – These callers are masters at emotional string pulling. When in doubt, hang up. Please notify if you suspect that someone has impersonated a credit union representative. We are happy to assist you.
Be skeptical – Caller ID can be faked. Hanging up is your best defense.
Never share a One-Time-Password (OTP) with anyone. OTPs are generated to verify your identity and criminals are anxious to obtain them by asking you to read OTPs to them over the phone or via text.
- Carefully review your statements regularly and contact us if you notice any unauthorized activity.
