Member and Employee Safety
Fraud and Cyber Security Alerts
Events like this bring out scammers and cybercriminals. Always stay vigilant when opening attachments or clicking links in an email. As a reminder, SECU would never call you and ask for your personal information or account number over the phone.
Beware of Stimulus Check Scammers
Checks will arrive soon, as part of the historic $2 trillion stimulus plan to help mitigate the economic fallout of COVID-19. We know that whenever money is involved, scammers are not far behind, planning opportunities to steal from unsuspecting victims.
Here are some signs to watch out for:
- Be wary of phone calls, texts, emails or websites that ask for personal or financial information in order to receive the stimulus check. This could be a phishing scam that is illegally trying to gain access to your financial account.
- No sign-up is required. If you are eligible to receive a relief check, you do not need to call, sign-up or make any up-front payments or pay fees to receive the check.
- No one has early access to the checks. Anyone claiming they can expedite your check is a scammer!
