NCACU is happy to remind members that our new ATM in the St. Helen Rite Aid Store, located at 2010 St. Helen Road, is available to meet your cash needs for the summer! Members can now save the drive by using their NCACU ATM/Debit card for cash transactions. Remember, when you are out and about this summer you can find the nearest surcharge-free CO-OP ATM by texting your zip code to 692667.
NCACU continues to work diligently to protect you and your accounts from fraud. But fraud attempts happen every day and members are susceptible. NEVER give out your account information, passwords or personal information to anyone who calls you. Recent fraud attempts include phone calls supposedly from the IRS regarding issues with tax filings or refunds. Once the caller convinces you they are legitimate (not) they just need you to clarify your account number. NO LEGITIMATE FINANCIAL AGENCY WILL EVER ASK FOR YOUR ACCOUNT NUMBER. EVER. No legitimate lending agency will ask you to send them money for a loan or deposit to your account. Ever. Never, ever give out your account information.
NCACU Branches/Departments are having a fun, spring challenge! For every loan we close, we get to put a balloon in the boss’ office! Follow our progress on Facebook and see how many balloons we can get in by the end of the month! www.facebook.com/ncacu
