While pickpockets can only target a few people each day, Internet fraudsters cast their nets much wider, using the anonymity and reach of mass emails and fake websites. You can protect yourself from these situations by knowing how to identify and avoid these scams.
Quick tips to avoid scams:
- Never use a link provided in an email or text to access your Online Banking (because we don't send those, scammers do!).
- Do not open emails, texts or attachments from unknown sources.
- Scan your emails using anti-virus software.
- Read before you click! It is important to understand that electronic messaging is not a secure form of communication. Unity Credit Union will never send you an unsolicited email or text message that asks you to provide sensitive personal information like your social security number, bank account number, and credit card information, ID questions like your mother's maiden name or your password.
