Be aware – telephone fraud!
Vishing, or voice phishing, occurs when a person receives a call from someone pretending to be from a trusted organization. They will call using an automated system and leave messages saying there is a problem with your account or bank card. They will also leave a telephone number or website where you will be directed to verify your personal account information and your identity. This is how vishing attempts work to steal your financial information and your identity.
Always verify before responding to telephone solicitations claiming to be from the NCUA and Power Financial Credit Union. We will never request personal information from our members via automated telephone services, voicemail or email. If you receive a call purporting to be from the NCUA or Power Financial Credit Union, please report this to us at 800.548.5465. If you receive suspicious emails, please forward them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We ask that you be proactive about identity theft by regularly monitoring your account activity or enrolling in an identity protection program such as LifeLock. If you feel that you may have been the victim of identity theft, report the fraud immediately and change your password. You should also contact the credit bureaus listed below to place a free 90 day fraud alert on your credit file. If you already have an identity theft protection service, please check with them as the fraud alerts may have already been placed.
Making you comfortable while conducting business with us is an important aspect of our mission at Power Financial Credit Union. Your security is very important to us. We are committed to protecting the personal and financial information of everyone in the Power Financial Credit Union family. Thank you for being a member and allowing us to serve you.
