March is Fraud Prevention Month, and this is just the latest update to help you protect yourself from scammers and other online criminals.
These are techniques criminals use to get you to provide personal information that could help them steal your identity or commit fraud. Watch for emails (phishing), phone calls (vishing) or text messages (smishing) that look like they’re from a legitimate organization but ask you to “verify” personal information. These communications also warn that something bad will happen if you don’t comply.
Servus Credit Union will never ask you for personal or financial information through an unsolicited email, phone call or text message. If you get a communication like this that appears to be from Servus, don’t click on any links or phone numbers in the communication. Instead, call our Member Contact Centre at 1.877.378.8728. For more information about phishing, vishing and smishing, visit the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre website.
