Watch out for Copycat's

Credit Union Website Legitimacy

Before you do anything on your credit union’s website, ensure the URL is correct. Many scammers use URLs that deliberately look very similar to a real credit union, but link to a copycat website. Scammers hope to lure you into the “evil twin” website to trick you into giving them personal information such as your account number and password.

If you have doubts that you’re on the right page you can retype the URL into your browser, conduct an internet search for your credit union’s name, and see if the same website is in the top listing. You can also read the website’s “About Us” section to look for a brief history of the credit union, address and information about its insurance coverage. East River FCU members should look for their unique Security Phrase before entering their security code/password.
