FAKE CHECK SCAMS

If you receive a check that you were not expecting, whether that check is drawn on Triangle FCU or another financial institution, we encourage you to contact the financial institution to verify the authenticity of the check before you attempt to deposit or cash it.  Visit this link, AARP, to learn more about fake check scams. 



CRYPTOCURRENCY SCAMS
At TFCU, we are always looking for ways to help and protect our member-owners.  As such, we would like to make you aware of scams involving cryptocurrency.

If someone ever contacts you for any reason and requires or demands payment in the form of cryptocurrency such as Bitcoin, they are lying to you and trying to steal from you. 
 
Only scammers demand payment in cryptocurrency. 

To learn more about how to protect yourself and your loved ones from this type of fraud, we encourage you to read the article What To Know About Cryptocurrency and Scams located on the Federal Trade Commission website.   

Please share this information with your family and friends.  Let's work together to keep everyone safe from financial crime. 



SECURITY ALERT!

Please be aware that TFCU will not call, text, email or otherwise contact you to request personal or banking information, nor will we send you a text or email prompting you to click a link.  If you are contacted by someone claiming to be a TFCU representative, do not provide personal information including your social security number, date of birth, debit card number, CVV number, etc. 
 
Even if caller ID or other sender information displays a TFCU contact, do not provide the sender with any personal information.  Technology has made it possible for criminals to "spoof" any phone number or email, making it look as though you are receiving contact from a known person or business.  Remember, TFCU will not call you to request personal information.  If you receive any contact that seems suspicious, end that contact immediately and call us directly at 662-434-6052 or visit any location to tell us about the contact you received.  

When you contact us, we may ask you a series of security questions that are intended to confirm the identity of the person with whom we are speaking.  Just as a criminal might impersonate a TFCU employee when they contact you, they may also impersonate a TFCU member when they contact us.  Protecting your personal and financial information is our top priority.  We encourage members to provide us with a secret password or passcode as an additional way for us to verify your identity.         

If you have questions or concerns regarding phone calls, emails, or any other communication related to your business with TFCU, please call us at 662-434-6052, option 8, or visit your nearest branch.
