Never, EVER.

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.
