Your Credit Union - a “Fees-able” Alternative
Since it’s becoming more difficult to fi nd a bank that doesn’t charge fees for just about every service imaginable, it’s nice to know that you have an affordable alternative - your Credit Union.
Many credit unions offer services for no fee at all. And, when a credit union fi nds it necessary to charge a fee, it tends to be much lower than what a bank would charge. After all, the credit union is generally just covering the cost of service.
Credit unions have lower fees because they tend to have lower operating costs. Different from banks, credit unions try to get the most out of their income from loans and investments, rather than through fees. Credit unions average less than 9% of their gross income from fees and other sources. In comparison, banks, which charge fees for almost everything, even seeing a teller, reap more than 40% of their income from charging you fees!
Not only do you save on fees at your Credit Union, but you can often get better loan rates and returns on savings. So if you are fed up with high bank fees and charges, see what your Credit Union has to offer. You’ll be pleasantly surprised.
Identity Theft Scams
Something Old and Something New
In a continuing effort to help members prevent identity theft, here are two additional ways in which your personal information could be stolen.
Something Old - Mail Fraud
If you haven’t received mail in a couple days that is addressed to you (circulars that everyone gets aren’t always addressed and don’t count), or if you normally receive mail on a daily basis, be sure to contact your local post offi ce immediately. Request that they look for any change of address or mail forwarding requests. A postal service supervisor will contact you the same business day with their fi ndings.
Something New – SMiShing (Text Message)
DO NOT RESPOND to these text messages. Save the text message and contact the Credit Union IMMEDIATELY. You can also fi le a complaint with the federal government by visiting www.ic3.gov.
