Tips to help protect your personal and financial information:

  1. Monitor your account transactions
    By regularly tracking your card usage, you will be able to identify unauthorized usage of your funds.

  2. Check your credit report
    You are entitled to one free credit report from each credit bureau each year! Visit https://www.annualcreditreport.com and select the bureau from which you would like to receive your report. Stagger your reports throughout the year for the most accurate and up-to-date information.

  3. Be cautious when opening email, clicking links or paying online
    Never click on links in the body of an email or download attachments from senders you do not know. Pay close attention to the email address and body of the email to ensure the message is coming from the correct place. Never save your financial information to a merchant site that you do not frequently use. If you receive an email, text message or phone call from someone claiming to be a financial representative who asks for your account number or social security information, DO NOT provide it. Instead contact your financial institution immediately and report the incident.

    • InFirst FCU will NEVER solicit personal or financial information.

    • NEVER respond to requests for information (via e-mail, phone, text messaging or mail) unless you initiate the request.
