This is a response to a member who was concerned about the drop in dividend rates:

Dear Sir-
I received your note in which you said that you are a long time member who is retired and counts on interest from his accounts. Thank you for your membership and your faith in Jovia Financial Credit Union.

You and I are pretty much in the same situation. Retired and investing our funds for the best income and safety. We, and most of the rest of our generation, are not getting the rate of interest that former retirees earned on their savings. It hurts!

Tips to Protect Yourself From Phishing Scams

Phishing scams try to trick you into giving up sensitive personal information and/or install malware on your devices via fake emails, text messages and websites. Here are some tips to recognize a phishing attempt to avoid becoming a victim:
  • Keep an eye out for suspicious emails. They will often contain suspicious sender names, incorrect sender email addresses, and messages containing threats or warnings. 
  • Do not click or open a suspicious link or attachment.
  • Do not give your personal information to someone who calls, texts, or emails you.
  • Do not enter personal or banking information on an untrusted website or within a pop-up screen.
  • Keep personal information including social security number, debit card PIN, CVV, passwords, and device/account verification codes confidential.
  • Using peer-to-peer payment applications like Zelle® to transfer money from a mobile device is like giving someone cash. Be sure to only send money to people you know and trust.
Follow these simple tips to identify and avoid phishing attempts. 

Our Personal Cybersecurity Tips article offers additional ways to keep your personal information safe and secure.
