We are running an awareness campaign this week for Fraud Awareness Week, we will be texting a key message regarding Fraud everyday this week.

In light of the fact that we’re coming into the busiest shopping time of the year with Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and the copious amounts of online Christmas shopping that will take place, we are uging our members to stay Fraud Aware and Stay Safe online.

  • If you think you have responded to a scam text message, contact us immediately.
  • Contact MYCU using the number on the back of your debit card.
  • Never use phone numbers in a text message as this could be a fake number.
