Credit Union Advisory
”Phishing” scams are one of the fastest-growing frauds today. Typically, bogus email or text messages are sent with
legitimate materials, such as a credit union or other organization’s website graphics and logos (FDIC, NCUA, IRS, etc.) –
the look and feel of a trusted source– in an attempt to entice email recipients to provide personal financial details, such
as account information, credit card and Social Security numbers.
As a precaution, never respond to an unsolicited email that asks for personal financial or identification information.
If you believe you have provided sensitive information about yourself through a phishing scam, immediately contact the
organization for which you provided the information. If you have received an unsolicited email mimicking Travis Credit Union,
please call our Member Service Center immediately at (707) 449-4000 or (800) 877-8328.
Notify the three major credit bureaus and request that a fraud alert be placed on your credit report. They are:
Equifax – (800) 525-6285, Experian – (888) 397-3742, TransUnion (800) 680-7289.
