MMFCU members, whose debit or credit card was affected by the data breach, were mailed a letter regarding the steps MMFCU is taking to re-issue a card.
This incident serves as a reminder to all members to be consistently watchful of personal accounts from all financial institutions as a general precaution; and also remind you that MMFCU will never ask for personal information via e-mail or telephone that you - the member - has not initiated. For your protection, here are a few best-practice tips regarding your overall credit security.
- Monitor your credit and debit cards from all financial institutions. If you see unusual activity, contact the credit union or financial institution, who issued the card, immediately.
- Watch your credit report via www.annualcreditreport.com for unsolicited account openings. This is a FREE service to review your credit report annually.
- To deactivate a MMFCU credit or debit card during non-business hours, call 1-866-820-3862.
- Be aware of credit “phishing” attempts on your personal information. MMFCU will not ask for any personal information via telephone or email that you, the member, has not initiated. If you are unsure a phone call, e-mail, or “pop-up” message is legitimate, call your local MMFCU branch at a phone number you retrieve from our website or local phone book. Do not return calls via a phone number provided by the “in-question” call or email.
We're with you all the way!
