Fraud Tips

Dear RCCU Members,

We have recently seen an increase in the amounts of fraud being perpetrated: Debit Card, ACH/Check, etc. Fraud has become a high priority for RCCU and we want our members to be aware and use caution. Below are some tips to help avoid fraud.

Receiving New Checks in the Mail:

Use caution when receiving mail with sensitive information; such as new checks.

Helpful Tips:
  • Make sure you know when your checks are coming.
  • Check your mail on the day you assume they are coming.
  • Have your checks delivered to a Red Crown location and we will call you when they have arrived.
Fraudulent Calls:

Use caution when receiving phone calls from an individual claiming you owe them money.

Helpful Tips:

  • Caller ID can be manipulated to appear as if a call is coming from a certain organization.
  • Organizations like the IRS will only contact you by mail; never by phone.
  • Never give personal information to someone you don’t know.
Online Scams:

Use caution when conducting online transactions; such as online purchases, online loan applications.

Helpful Tips:
  • Know who you are doing business with.
  • Don’t give personal information online unless you know the person or you are on a trusted website.
