Every so often you may get a random phone call from someone claiming to need your personal information to prevent fraud on your account or somehow ‘help’ you solve a problem you did not know you had. Be skeptical! Ask questions and make SURE it is a legitimate person/company you are familiar with and have an existing relationship with – and when in doubt, do not share personal information.
Call us at TelComm CU if you have questions and want to verify we actually contacted you. It is better to be safe than sorry. As technology improves, unfortunately so do the tricky criminals seeking to take advantage.
