Be Fraud Aware

Fraud & Protection Tips:

  • Be wary of any text messages or phone calls, which may reference account verification or password changes. Cavan Credit Union will NEVER contact a member by phone, text or email asking them to verify their account or to give them personal account details over the phone. If you are in doubt about a message or phone call in relation to your Cavan Credit Union account, please contact us directly and ask a member of staff.
  • Never respond to an email or text asking for financial, personal or security information.

  • Your personal details are precious – always keep your PINs & passwords private. Keep your account and log in details safe and secure. NEVER share your log in credentials with anyone, regardless of who they may claim to be.
  • Fraudsters can use Number Spoofing when they make contact by phone to make it look like they are calling from the phone number of a genuine organisation. They may then try to trick the person into divulging personal, financial or security information. Remember: Scams can take many formats.
  • Cover your PIN every time you pay using your card & at the ATM.
  • Unsecured public Wi-Fi networks are hotspots for fraudsters – use 4G when shopping or banking online.
  • Fraudsters are very good at making e-mails look genuine and can set up elaborate and convincing dummy websites. NEVER click on links in messages. Always manually enter a web address into the address bar of your browser.
