Identity theft protection

What should I do to protect myself from identity theft or fraud? 

 

CAMC Federal Credit Union works hard to keep your information secure. You can also help by following these tips to protect your information:

  • Store personal information in a safe place. Tear up or shred old receipts and account statements before throwing away.

  • Protect your personal identification numbers (PINs) and other passwords. Do not share them with anyone.

  • Review account statements and billings carefully to ensure the information is accurate.

  • Guard your mail from theft by depositing bill payments directly at the post office instead of leaving them in the mailbox. Promptly remove all incoming mail.

If you believe you have been the victim of fraud or identity theft take immediate action.

  • Contact your financial institution or creditors for any accounts that may be affected by fraud to have accounts or credit/debit cards suspended from use. 

  • File a report with the police department where the fraud took place. Make sure that you obtain  a copy.
