At the Energy Credit Union, we’ve got your back! We know how important your finances are, and we want to help you avoid getting caught in the sneaky traps of bank impersonation scams. So snuggle up and let us share our top tips for protecting yourself!
Extra Protection with Two Step Verification We’ve got your back with a high-tech Two Step Verification system that gives an extra layer of protection. Whenever you make a transaction, we’ll send you a message (by SMS or email depending on which method you selected on enrollment) with a 6-digit code to confirm it’s really you. So, if anyone tries to sneak in, we’ll catch them red-handed!
Busting Bank Impersonation Scams: How They Work These scams often start with phishing, where scammers get hold of your login details and personal info. Then they’ll get in touch, pretending to be us, and claim there’s something suspicious going on with your account. They’ll ask for your Verification Code, but don’t be fooled! Sharing this code will give them access to your account or let them make unauthorized transactions.
