News & Events
Beware: There has been a "phishing" attempt, apparently a text message has been sent and it looks like it's coming from Community Alliance Credit Union.
We have had reports of scammers using text messages as another avenue to trick cardholders. When called, the phone number provided in the text prompts the consumer to walk through a series of steps to provide personal information such as account information, PIN numbers, expiration dates and/or their 3 digit CVV code.
While the text messages may mimic communications that members currently receive from Community Alliance, please remember that we will never contact you and ask for personal or sensitive account information in a text message. Please block that number on your phone. Do NOT call the phone number back in this fraudulent message.
Equifax is offering a website—www.equifaxsecurity2017.com—here you can check whether you are one of the 143 million people whose data may have been compromised. (A small number of citizens in the United Kingdom and Canada may also be affected.) Currently, the website doesn’t give you a simple answer about whether or not your data may have been affected, but it seems to tell you if it wasn’t. Equifax is also offering a year of free credit monitoring and identity theft insurance that you can (and should) sign up for on that site if you're a US resident. If your information could have been compromised in the breach, you might also want to consider paying for additional years of credit monitoring after Equifax’s free year expires. Attackers may have better luck abusing the leaked data in earnest after that first year is over and many potential victims lose free monitoring.
