Criminals may attempt to contact you by text, email, and phone pretending to be from your Credit Union or Banks or organisations such as An Post and Amazon attempting to gain access to your MYCU Debit card details to perform fraudulent debit card transactions on your MYCU current account.
False Text Messages
Our dedicated MYCU Card Services team uses text messages to communicate with our members if they are querying a suspicious transaction on your MYCU account
These texts will NEVER contain a link asking you to disclose your MYCU Debit Card details, but you will be asked to ring the MYCU Card Services Team on +353 (1) 511 94 94 – the number on the back of the card.
The MYCU Card Services Team may also send you a text containing a reminder of your PIN, but ONLY if you have asked them to send it to you and they will only send it to the mobile phone on your credit union account.
False Phone Calls
Criminals may contact you by phone numbers making it appear that the Credit Union is calling you. We will NEVER call you asking for your MYCU Debit Card details.
Anyone can be the target of financial fraud and scams, and at any time. Your best defence is to stay informed, alert, and secure. To protect your MYCU current account from fraud, please remember:
If your MYCU Debit Card is lost, stolen, compromised or you notice a suspicious debit card transaction on your account, contact the MYCU Card Services Team on +353 (1) 511 94 94 immediately.
