Beware of Fraud Checks
Scams may be attempted with check fraud. For example, if you should receive a check in the mail as a result of sale of merchandise over the internet or following notification that you have won a prize, proceed with caution! Make an attempt to contact the financial institution the check is drawn upon, to help you determine if the check is legitimate. Do not call the phone number on the check since it may be a fraudulent phone number. If you need help, please contact us for additional information.
Fraud & Scams
When personal information is obtained fraudulently, scams may be attempted. Only provide your personal information for legitimate purposes when you are certain you are disclosing it to a legitimate source. If you receive an unexpected request by email, phone or even by mail, from an institution or business, take a moment to phone them to determine if the request is legitimate. Use a phone number from your latest telephone directory. "Phishing" occurs when an official looking request is made, but the source is really a counterfeit website or address.
Remember, KV Federal Credit Union would never email, phone or text message you to ask you for your account number or other personal information.
