We have learned of a widespread telephone phishing scam. Cardholders may receive what appear to be automated phone calls or texts, telling them that their ATM/Debit cards are locked. The automated message requests call recipients to "Press 1" where they are to enter their 16-digit card number into their telephone key pad. Once this is entered, the scammers are then requesting the card’s Personal Identification Number (PIN). The scam artists are attempting to obtain customer card numbers and PINs in order to gain access to customer accounts via ATMs or POS (point of sale) purchases. As your institution we would never ask you for your PIN (Personal Identification Number). Please beware of calls of this manner and if you feel you are involved in such a call please get as much information from the person as possible. Please notify us as soon as possible.
For details please call 226-8282.
By operation of federal law, beginning January 1, 2013, funds deposited in a noninterest-bearing transaction account (including an Interest on Lawyer Trust Account) no longer will receive unlimited deposit insurance coverage by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA). Beginning January 1, 2013, all of a depositor's accounts at an insured depository institution, including all noninterest-bearing transaction accounts, will be insured by the NCUA up to the standard maximum deposit insurance amount ($250,000), for each deposit insurance ownership category.
