Unfortunately we all must be on guard to protect our personal information from fraud. Identity theft occurs when someone uses your personal information without your permission to commit fraud or other crimes. Your personal information can be stolen several different ways including scams posing as a legitimate business person, financial institution or government official. Fraudsters attempt to obtain your personal information in many ways including posing as your financial institution in an email, text message or other electronic forms.
Please remember, Texas Bay Credit Union employees will not ask you for personal information in an email or text message (SMS) and will not initiate a call to you on the phone requesting personal information (member number, account numbers, credit card number, or debit card number, etc.) without you contacting us first for service.
