As credit and debit card fraud continues to rise nationwide, the need for Fraud Prevention Services becomes increasingly necessary.

Take the Worry out of Plastic Card Fraud

At Corning Credit Union, we are taking steps to combat fraud by utilizing a fraud prevention service. This service enables us to detect any unusual activity on your Visa® credit or debit ( CU-Extra® , X-treme or ATM) card. If it detects suspicious transactions on your account, a fraud specialist from Fraud Prevention Services will contact you.

Please be aware, in the event a fraud specialist is unable to reach you, there is the potential that a block may be placed on your card. This block is a proactive effort to prevent unauthorized card use. If you experience a block or a decline, call Corning Credit Union for assistance.

If you suspect fraud, if your card has been lost or stolen, or if you are experiencing difficulty using your card, call CCU’s Fraud Prevention Services at 607-962-3144 or 800-677-8506.
