March is Fraud Awareness Month
AT TCU we believe it is important to educate our members about fraud because an educated member is far less likely to fall victim to this type of crime. Lets face it, you work hard for your money so we want to make sure it is protected in every way we can. That is why we have provided the following links for more information. As well, please visit our Internet Security page to learn more about how we keep you safe.
Are You at Risk?
Are you cashing or depositing a cheque for any of these reasons:
- Items sold on the internet

Have you been asked to:
- Return some of the cheque proceeds?
- Wire, Western Union or Money Gram some of the funds to someone?

Have you responded to an email requesting you to:
