Alerts and warnings to help protect you from fraud and other malicious activity
Fraudulent Cashiers Checks
Be alert that members are receiving fraudulent checks along with an attached letter with instructions to participate in a “secret shopper” program. The letter dictates that you deposit the check and use the funds to buy thousands of dollars worth of gift cards, then email the redemption codes to an email address. These are scams and are not to be trusted. Please call us or ask at the teller window before depositing any money into your accounts if you have received a letter and/or check that is similar.
Monitor Your Accounts
Please be sure to monitor your accounts and notify us immediately if you notice suspicious activity.
Be sure to never share your PIN with anyone and safeguard your finances.

Before you travel, please contact us at (607) 724-5876 and let us know the dates of your trip and where you’ll be going, along with contact information, so that we can ensure your card will not be denied.
