 New Fraud Prevention Automation Service

In our continuing efforts to keep your accounts secure, we’ve improved our alert system for potential fraud connected to our DEBIT CARDS.

Here’s how it works:

When potential fraud is detected, you will receive a call from our fraud center:

If no answer:

This is the Fraud Center calling for <CONTACT NAME 1> or <CONTACT NAME2 >. We need to verify recent activity on your card ending in <1234>. Your card may have a temporary restriction in place. It is important that you call us back at your earliest convenience, toll free at 1-800-808-6392 to verify this activity. You may call us back 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

If pick up detected:

This is the Fraud Center calling on behalf of IBEW calling for <CONTACT NAME 1> or <CONTACT NAME 2> if present>. Press 1 to continue in English. Pare continuar en Espanol oprima dos.

We need to inform you of a possible security concern on your card ending in <1234>. If this is <CONTACT NAME1> press 1, if this is <CONTACT NAME2> press 2. If not, please press 5. If we have reached this number in error, please press 9.  YOU WILL THEN BE PROMPTED THROUGH RIGHT PARTY AUTHENTICATION AND TRANSACTION VERIFICATION.

If they are unable to reach you by phone, you may also receive a Text Alert or an automatic email notification from IBEW & United Workers FCU, with the option to reply with “fraud” or “no fraud.”
