Itís Not Just the Holiday Season
The holiday season is upon us, and along with it comes increased fraud attempts. Increased holiday shopping and activity open the door for fraudsters to use your personal or financial information. What can you do to prevent a thief from stealing your personal or financial information? To protect your identity and safeguard your credit, CCU offers the following suggestions:
checkbox Donít carry everything around - such as ALL of your credit cards, Social Security number, and birth certificate - unless it is absolutely necessary. Your Champion Credit Union VISA card and ATM/debit card are two great choices for maximum purchasing power.
checkbox Keep a list of all credit cards, account numbers, expiration dates, and the phone numbers of the fraud departments or contact people in a secure place - not in your wallet or purse.
checkbox Memorize your personal identification number (PIN) for your ATM/debit card; do not write it down and donít carry it with you.
checkbox Avoid giving out your credit card number or other personal information over the phone unless you initiated the call.
checkbox Review your monthly statements carefully and in a timely manner. Report discrepancies to your credit union immediately. Virtual branch, mobile money, and eStatements make it easy to monitor and review your account in a timely manner.
checkbox Shred all documents with personal information before discarding them.
