Text Scams work by someone texting you claiming to be CASE Credit Union.
If you receive any text message(s) claiming to be CASE Credit Union, please delete it. These are not from us! We encourage anyone that has provided such confidential information to contact their financial institution immediately with details, whether that be CASE or another financial institution.
Please note that CASE will never ask you to provide your account number or debit/credit information via text or email.
Phishing is a scam to collect valuable information such as credit card, social security numbers, user ID’s and passwords. These emails will claim to be from a company you know and trust. The email usually asks you to ‘update’ or ‘validate’ your account information. It often threatens some type of consequence such as ‘your debit card will be deactivated’. The message directs you to a website that looks like a legitimate organizations website, but is not.
Never reply to an email you receive that is requesting your personal information and never click on the link provided in the email. Always type the URL address of the organizations legitimate website in your browser and make sure the website address does not change from the one you intended.
Vishing is the voice counterpart to phishing. Instead of being directed by e-mail to a website, an email asks the user to make a telephone call. The call triggers a voice response system that asks for personal or financial information. The initial contact can also be a telephone call with a recording that instructs the user to phone an 800-number or another area code within or outside of the United States.
If the message appears to be from a legitimate source, contact that sources main phone number - not the number provided in the email or phone message – and verify.
Smishing is the mobile phone counterpart to phishing. Instead of being directed by email to a website, a text message is sent to the user’s cell phone or other mobile device with some ploy to click on a link. The link causes a Trojan to be installed in the cell phone or other mobile device.
If a text message looks suspicious, delete it right away without reading it. Never reply to or follow the instructions of a text message that asks you for personal information. A legitimate business will never ask you to reveal your personal information over the phone or online.
Your online security is important to us. CASE provides you with an Enhanced Multifactor Authentication service, which is free, easy and most important, adds extra protection from fraud and identity theft.
This process is used to authenticate members by delivering one time passcodes to a phone number (via voice call or SMS text) the member has provided during online banking registration.
