Help us Stop Data Breaches06/16/2015
Did you know that merchants are not held to the same federal data protection standards as financial institutions like CEFCU? What does that mean? Well, it can be easier for criminals to get your credit card information, debit pin, or other sensitive information from a merchant.
Credit unions are often limited, or even prohibited, in disclosing many of the details from a merchant derived data breach, including the merchant responsible for the situation. And, credit unions clean up the mess when a merchant data breach occurs by informing members and reissuing them new credit and debit cards if needed. In addition, credit unions pursue criminals through available legal channels on behalf of members, saving them time and legal expenses.
So, now we need your help to let Congress know that merchants should be required to safeguard your personal information and held accountable for data breaches. Help CEFCU and other credit unions tell Congress that merchants should be accountable and required to reimburse credit unions, and other financial institutions, for the costs incurred as a result of their breaches. And, let Congress know that credit unions should be able to tell their members the name of a merchant causing the data breach. Thank you, and check out the Stop the Breach website for more information.

"Locked" MasterCard Phishing Scam08/06/2015
Members have contacted CEFCU regarding an automated phone message they have received that states their MasterCard has been “locked.” The message instructs the cardholder to press 1 and enter the card number, expiration date, security code, and Social Security Number.
If you received this message, pressed 1, and provided any personal information, please call CEFCU's Contact Center at 1.800.633.7077 to speak with staff in the Debit Card or Credit Card Operations Departments.
As a reminder, CEFCU does not send automated messages to members when fraud is suspected with their CEFCU Debit or Credit Card or if their card has been deactivated.
CEFCU members have reported receiving phone calls stating their MasterCard has been blocked. These calls are not from CEFCU. Do not follow the directions in these messages, instead follow the directions provided by the BBB.
If you receive a call asking you for your card number, expiration date, Social Security number, or any other response, end the call. Contact CEFCU immediately if you did respond to the call.
