No question – the past few weeks have been unreal as a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). We’re seeing things unfold that most of us haven’t experienced before. Entire cities have shut down, people are being quarantined, and credit unions are being forced to find different ways to serve members.
While we’ve seen the best in humanity from Dollar General setting aside the first hour, they’re open to serve the elderly to multiple restaurants providing meals for kids who are out of school we’ve also seen scammers who are exploiting people’s Coronavirus fears.
Even though there are lots of ways to get taken advantage of, there are also lots of ways to protect yourself.
While it seems that this unfortunate epidemic has come upon us most unexpectedly, there are fraudsters out there quickly taking action and prepared to hustle unsuspecting, innocent people. If you aren’t sure of the legitimacy on a certain request, take extra steps to verify to ensure you’re doing everything you can to protect yourself, your sensitive information, and your money.
Your privacy and protection are important to us. Feel free to reach out to us if you receive communication from an entity claiming to be from our credit union to verify its legitimacy. Thank you for all you do to make our organization great and we wish you all physical and financial wellness through this trying time.
