What Is Spoofing?

A caller deliberately falsifies the information transmitted to your caller ID display to disguise their identity. Scammers often use neighbor spoofing so it appears that an incoming call is coming from a local number, or spoof a number from a company or a government agency that you may already know and trust. If you answer, they use scam scripts to try to steal your money or valuable personal information, which can be used in fraudulent activity.

Important reminder:
we will never ask you for this information. If you receive a call from someone at the credit union requesting your PIN number, security codes, passwords or non-public information, please contact the credit union immediately.
