Protect Yourself Against Social Media Scams
Just a reminder that New Horizons Credit Union has a system that monitors members' accounts for possible fraud.  You may be contacted if fraud is suspected, but NHCU will never ask for personal information such as online credentials, your entire card number, account number, or social security number via email, voice, or text messaging.  To report fraudulent charges, or a lost or stolen card during business hours, contact our Call Center at (251) 316-3240.  After hours, call (800) 449-7728.
 
There are many forms of social media that we use day in and day out - with friends and in doing business.  All forms of social media have their share of scams by some very creative fraud artists who can cause everything from computer viruses to ID Theft if you fall victim.
Protect yourself on social media by taking the same basic steps as you would for any other method of keeping your data safe:  Don't share with strangers, know who you are communicating with and verify their identities, be aware that scams exist, and remember that if something sounds too good to be true, it is.  
*If you ever feel you have been a victim of fraud, please contact your credit union or identitytheft.gov
