Identity Theft Tools and Prevention Tips

We’ve all heard of it, and we’ve all seen someone go through it. It can happen to anyone. We’re here to help if it happens to you.

What should you do if you think you are a victim of identify theft?

If you think that you are a victim of identity theft with your FECU account, contact us today for assistance with your next steps.

 Here are some tips to help you keep your information safe:

  • Update your passwords. When is the last time you did a password reset for everything? Take the time now and save yourself time later. Create strong passwords and change them on a regular basis. Use different passwords on different accounts.
  • Check your financial accounts daily or weekly. Login to FECU online banking and review your transactions. Contact us if something seems off.
  • Don’t open emails that you don’t know who they are coming from, and do not open suspicious email attachments
  • Don’t provide your financial information to anyone that is contacting you. Hang up and contact the appropriate person to confirm.
  • Be careful at ATM’s. Make sure the ATM doesn’t have any device attached to it and be sure no one is close by.
  • Do not share your PIN numbers or passwords and do not write them down where someone could find them.
  • Freeze your credit if you are concerned, and you can freeze your credit until you decide to unfreeze it. Check out the links above to freeze your credit.

As a reminder, we will never contact you for your personal information such as social security numbers or account numbers.
