EQUIFAX DATA BREACH

The American Pride Credit Union does not share data or report data to Equifax. However, our members may still be at risk if they used the services of other financial institutions. We strongly encourage all of our members to review your accounts for any suspicious or potentially fraudulent activity. Equifax has provided a website the you can visit to determine if your information has been impacted by the breach. Visit www.equifaxsecurity2017.com for more information about how you can protect yourself and your information.

MEMBER ALERT - JUNE 1, 2015 - FRAUDULENT CHECK SCAM APPEARS IN OUR AREA

A recent "secret shopper" scam has been active in the area and has resulted in innocent individuals being held liable for deposits of large dollar checks which came to them unsolicited in the mail. If you get a check in the mail that you did not ask for and do not know the party from which it came, please call the bank or credit union to verify the check. If anyone asks you to "take a picture" of a bank or credit union check and send it to them, this is a major warning sign of attempted fraud.

Part of the scam involves forged bank or credit union checks which are mailed to random individuals across the country. If you attempt to deposit these checks, you could be held liable for any losses the financial institution suffers. In addition, if you sell an item online using sites such as Craig's List, be aware that you could be the victim of fraud if you accept a check for payment and don't verify funds. We have been working with law enforcement and other financial institutions to help protect our members from these kind of scams. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call us.

ATTENTION DEBIT/ATM CARDHOLDERS:

Effective August 18, 2014 you are now able to use your debit/ATM card in the state of Delaware for PIN based transactions. Anywhere you can input your personal identification number (PIN) is now approved. For example at ATM's for cash or any merchant where you can input your PIN number on a pin pad. Signature debit transactions are still declined in Delaware due to the high incidence of fraud emanating from that state.
