In the wake of the Equifax breach, fraudsters may be even more prevalent in their attempts to steal your information. While this can be a very scary and unsure time, there are ways to protect yourself against potential fraud, including steps you can take right now.
Our staff is well-trained in sniffing out potential thieves and we are dedicated to the security of your finances, but you too need to be vigilant in protecting yourself and any other accounts you may have outside of the Credit Union.
Don’t click on web-links if they appear suspicious; don’t open attachments; and don’t respond to emails, text messages, or phone calls that are asking for your information — regardless of who the caller or sender is claiming to be.
Monitor your transactions daily and report irregular activity to us or to the card issuer, which you can do by dialing the 800 number on the back of your card. Update your code word, ensure we have your driver’s license on file, and change your passwords and PIN numbers. We also urge you to leverage the security alert services that Wauna Credit Union offers. Learn more by visiting our website at www.waunafcu.org.
In the meantime, rest assured that we are working around the clock to safeguard your personal information, and are here to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
