ID Theft Prevention Tips

  • Sign up for eStatements and keep your paper statement out of your unsecured home mailbox.
  • Keep your personal information safe.
  • Don’t leave financial information where others can view it, either at home or at work.
  • Shred/burn documents, especially financial statements, credit applications or credit card convenience checks.
  • Take your mail to the post office or collection boxes.
  • Do not give out personal information by phone or email. Remember that the credit union will never ask for your personal account information through email. Be wary of anyone asking to “verify” information through these channels.
  • Do not carry anything with your Social Security number on it.
  • Do not open emails if you don’t know who sent it (especially with attachments).
  • Review your credit report(s) at least once a year.

Victims of Identity Theft

If you are a victim of identity theft, here are some steps you should take immediately:

  • Contact the credit union and other financial institutions you belong to.
  • Contact the credit bureaus to place a Fraud Alert on your accounts. You should also order a credit report to track any fraudulent activity you aren’t aware of.
  • Contact your local police department. Having filed a police report may help when dealing with future creditors.
  • Contact the Federal Trade Commission. They have an identity theft hotline, and can also help you prepare an ID Theft Affidavit to provide to creditors.
  • Contact the Social Security Administration if someone is using your number.
