Fraud Prevention

Follow these steps to be safe:

  • We will never contact you asking for personal details for account information. Please contact us if you ever receive such a phone call, email or letter.
  • Never give out your account number to anyone other than employers or other trusted and encrypted sites, such as setting up auto pay for utilities.
  • Never give out your debit card number online, such as for a Facebook or Instagram advertised purchase. Once you give the number, there is no way to stop that transaction. We are seeing purchases being made by members, and the money is debited or charged, but the product ordered is never received. Or the members didn’t read the fine print and they are set up on an auto-ship subscription, so the funds keep coming out every month.
  • Never pay with a gift card over the phone. Scammers often ask you to buy a gift card and then give them the gift card number and the PIN on the back of the card. Once they have that information, the money is gone, and you will not be able to get it back.
