Protecting your accounts
As previously mentioned, a wire transfer is a secure way to send and receive money. But, some criminals may try to trick you into sending them one, scamming you out of money. They prefer this method because once the money is in their hands, you may not be able to get it back. Avoid falling victim to this scam by doing the following:
- Be vigilant about knowing whom you send funds.
- Be cautious about online or social media requests to wire money.
- Never give your personal or banking information to a stranger or unknown source.
- Know GECU will never initiate contact asking for personal information.
