Text Fraud Alerts Expand/Colapse

With Credit Union 1 fraud monitoring, keeping your card safe is as easy as sending a text.

Our text alert service allows you to instantly keep tabs on suspicious card activity.

At Credit Union 1, we want to make sure that using your debit card is always as safe and convenient as possible. That's why we use text alerts as part of our ongoing fraud monitoring program.

With text fraud alerts, if our system detects suspicious activity on your card, you'll receive a text message with details about the suspected transaction. All you have to do is respond to the text to confirm the transaction.

If you indicate the transaction is fraud, you'll receive another message with a number to call for follow-up. If not, you're all set. The system will mark the transaction as legitimate and you can get on with your day — simple as that.

Getting Started

If we have your mobile phone number on file, you don't have to do anything. It's really that easy. If there is suspicious activity, we'll send a text alert right away.

If you need to update your mobile phone number give us a call at 800.252.6950.

Message and data rates may apply. Check with your mobile carrier for details.

Things to Remember

  • A text alert from us warning of suspicious activity on your card will NEVER include a link to be clicked. Never click on a link in a text message that is supposedly from us. A valid notification will provide information about the suspect transaction and ask the cardholder to reply to the text message with answers such as ‘yes’, ‘no’, ‘help’, or ‘stop’. It will never include a link.
  • A text alert from us will always be from a 5-digit number and NOT a 10-digit number resembling a phone number. 
  • A phone call from our institution’s automated dialer will only include a request for your zip code, and no other personal information, unless you confirm that a transaction is fraudulent. Only then will you be transferred to an agent who will ask questions to confirm that you are the actual cardholder before going through your transactions with you. If at any point you are uncertain about questions being asked or the call itself, hang up and call us directly. If a call is received by the cardholder, claiming to be our call center and asking to verify transactions, no information should have to be provided by the cardholder other than their zip code, and a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to the transaction provided.
  • We will NEVER ask you for your PIN or the 3-digit security code on the back of your card. Don’t give them out to anyone, no matter what they say. Hang up and call us directly. Fraudsters will often ask cardholders to verify fake transactions. When the cardholder says no, they did not perform those transactions, the fraudster then says that their card will be blocked, a new card will be issued, and that they need the card’s PIN to put it on the new card. Many people believe this and provide their PIN. The 3-digit CV2 code on the back of the card will allow a fraudster to conduct card-not-present transactions.
  • Regularly check your account online to see if there are any suspicious transactions that have occurred, but especially If you are unsure about a call or text message you’ve received. If anything looks amiss, call us directly for assistance.
  • If you have received a voice- or a text-message from us and are unsure about responding to it, call us directly for assistance.
