May 24, 2018 - Zelle Fraud Information
TCCU has become aware of recent reports of fraud experienced by local bank customers whose online banking accounts had been hacked using a mobile person-to-person payment service called Zelle. While TCCU is not a Zelle participant, members may still be at risk. Typically, users must register for Zelle via online banking, but for users whose bank or credit union does not offer this service, they can register directly with Zelle. All it takes is a debit card, email address, and phone number. Potentially, anyone who has access to your debit card number can create a Zelle account with your card and access your funds. The ONLY way to protect your account from this new fraud hack (and others) is to use TCCU’s CardNav App and turn your TCCU debit card off when it is not in use. Click here to read more...
