Thank you for contributing to Toys for Tots

Thank you to the Education Credit Union membership for giving at this special time of year!  On Wednesday, December 18, 2019, the Cambridge Fire Fighters visited the Kitchener branch to pick up the toys donated through our yearly Toys for Tots collection.  The gifts are disbursed to families in need through the Cambridge Fire Fighter’s Basket Fund, to ensure every child can wake to the magic of Christmas morning.  Thank you for your generosity to make this possible!

Security

The excitement of the holiday season, coupled with the volume of online transactions, provides ample opportunity for cyber attacks.  Here are some helpful measures to keep top of mind:

  • Scammers may send text messages impersonating a financial institution typically asking you to provide usernames and passwords, that can be used to commit financial crimes. For example, “Your credit union online access has temporarily been put on hold due to security verifications. Please confirm your account by signing in http://click-here.mobi/ “. Good practice is to always go directly to the website by typing in the address yourself!
  • Everybody loves a great deal. But shocking offers, unbelievable discounts and unreal rates may signal that the offer isn’t quite what it seems.  Do some research!
  • One of the easiest and most important things you can do is to get in the habit of using strong password practices. Make your password a sentence, use capitals, numbers and special characters.
  • Using Two-factor authentication (also known as 2FA or multi-factor authentication) provides an added layer of security for account access.
  • You should never log into your online or mobile banking account while you are on a public computer or connected to public wi-fi. Public computers and wi-fi are regularly compromised by hackers. This easily allows them to steal your account credentials.

 

Finally, make sure you check your credit union account statement at least once a month.  Look for unknown or suspicious account activity.  If you see a transaction you don’t recognize, immediately report it to your credit union: security@ecusolutions.com.
