Your NCCYou Fraud Information

We are here to help keep your identity and finances safe!
Fraud Prevention Alert!
We had a non-member come in to cash a check that was drawn on a member’s account here. Our MSR, Izzy, noticed that the signature didn’t match any of the other checks the member had previously written. We contacted the member and confirmed that he had not written that check. He recently ordered a box of checks and it seems they were somehow intercepted or stolen from his mailbox. We contacted the police and are working with them to resolve the matter. No funds were lost by our member.
Great job to Izzy for catching this and Operations Manager, Maria, for taking the appropriate steps!
This is a good reminder that there is more potential for fraud with paper checks than with online bill pay through our secure and encrypted website and mobile app. If you need help using that, we are happy to help you! (it’s also free and so much faster.)  Instructions and how-to videos are available here…  E-Services | Northern Communities Credit Union (nccyou.com)  

Team NCCYou prevented a huge scam! 

A member came in wanting to do a wire transfer for $2000 and claimed it was for a “special delivery charge” to recieve a large check from a Federal Grant.  Our Accounting Specialist, Jane, had a gut feeling this was fraud.  She and our VP of Administration, Anitta, and Senior MSR, Kristin, researched it and indeed it was fraud.  They prevented our member from being taken advantage of… Great job team!!
