In today’s digital age, safeguarding your personal information is more crucial than ever. With the rise of scams and fraudulent activities, it’s essential to stay vigilant and informed to protect yourself and your finances. At Sentinel Federal Credit Union, your security is our utmost priority, and we want to empower you with the knowledge to defend against potential threats.

One of the most important things to remember is that Sentinel Federal Credit Union will never call you asking for sensitive information such as your online banking credentials, passwords, token codes, or full card and PIN numbers. Why? Because we already have that information securely stored within our systems. If you ever receive a call requesting this type of information, it’s a red flag. Hang up immediately and report the incident to us.

 It’s also important to note that we do not outsource any third-party security services. If someone claims to be affiliated with Sentinel Federal Credit Union and requests personal information, it’s likely a scam. Unfortunately, scammers have become increasingly sophisticated in their tactics, going to great lengths to gain your trust and access your sensitive details.

 We’ve observed a concerning uptick in scam instances, and scammers often target the vulnerable. It’s easy to be caught off guard and believe that those reaching out to you are genuine. However, that’s exactly what scammers are banking on – your trust and vulnerability.

 This is why awareness is half the battle. By educating yourself, your family, and your friends about common scam tactics and how to protect personal information, you can collectively defend against fraudulent activities. Share this information with your loved ones and neighbors to help keep our community safe.

 Remember, if something feels off or too good to be true, it probably is. Trust your instincts and verify the legitimacy of any requests for personal information. Together, we can work towards a safer and more secure banking experience for all members of Sentinel Federal Credit Union. Stay informed, stay vigilant, and together, we can outsmart the scammers.
