The text message will arrive with a 5 digit code (33748) and contain our financial institution name, the amount of transaction, and merchant name.

Fraud Watch: Protect Yourself from Fraud
Exercising caution with email from companies, organizations, and institutions, even those in whom you trust, is a good way to prevent fraud. There have been fraudulent email messages which appear to come from trusted institutions, text messaging scams, and phone scams. Please visit our Fraud Prevention page regularly to learn more about the latest scams. Remember, no organization or institution you do business with will ask you to submit personal information.
Giving to a Cause? Be Aware of Charity Scams In the wake of any tragedy many people want to help in some way. Scam artists can take advantage of our natural inclination to lend a hand. Remember, before you give to any charity, be sure the charity is legitimate, there is a clear plan for use of funds, and that the charity will provide the support it claims it will. For information on how to avoid being taken advantage of, you can visit Give.org. For more information on scams, visit our Fraud Prevention page.
Phishing Email Scams If you received emails asking for you to provide personal information, even if they appear to be from a trusted source, think before you click, and do not download any attachements. No trusted organization will ever send an email asking you for personal or financial information. For more information on previous phishing email scams, visit our Fraud Prevention page.
TEXT MESSAGING SCAM ALERT* The following message is a SCAM: "Your credit union debit card has a pending alert. Call now, toll-free 1-940-XXX-XXXX, and follow the instructions to resolve this alert." If you receive a text or e-mail stating this message, do NOT call the number or give out any of your information. For more information, visit the Fraud Prevention page!
