Sentinel Federal Credit Union warns all members to be extremely cautious when you are asked for personal or financial information over the phone, by email, through a text message or the Internet. Don’t give out personal information unless you’ve initiated the contact and are sure you know who you’re dealing with.
Identity thieves are clever, and may pose as a representative of your Credit Union to get you to reveal your sensitive information. The thieves may use pressure to get you to act immediately or use scare tactics or harassment to trick you into sharing your personal information.
DO NOT RESPOND to these fraudulent messages. These are scams attempting to steal your personal information. Sentinel Federal Credit Union will NEVER contact you via email, text, or phone asking for confidential or sensitive information. Remember never give out your sensitive information to people who contact you.
Contact us immediately at 605-923-1405 or 888-923-1400 if you responded to a fraudulent message and have given out any information.
