July 2021 | Fraud Prevention Alert

Be sure to take caution when dialing the activation number for your new card. Unfortunately, fraudsters are always looking for opportunities and it’s come to our attention that one of their newest schemes is to pose as an activation line using phone numbers that are similar to secure activation lines (typically just one digit off, so they can easily be misdialed by unsuspecting members). If you do happen to misdial and a representative asks for your card information or promises you’ve won some sort of prize, please hang up and call Destinations Credit Union or your other card issuer directly for assistance.
