Please be aware of ongoing fraud attempts by fraudsters trying to gain access to your personal and financial information.
Suggested Best Practices for Members:
- Be cautious when responding to emails, SMS text messages as well as voice calls, even if they appear to come from the credit union.
- Call us at 301-944-1800 to question any SMS text messages or voice calls purportedly from the credit union.
- Never provide personal information in response to emails, SMS text messages and phone calls purportedly from the credit union.
- Do not click on links included in emails or text messages from unknown sources. Legitimate requests to validate card activity will request a simple response of YES or NO. They will not include hyperlinks to other websites or ask for any personal info.
Please be aware of a recent fraud where the frauster pretends to "hire" an individual for a remote position. The individual is then instructed to deposit the check/s and buy what they need and send the remaining funds back to the fraudster.
