What is Phishing?

Phishing is a process by which scam artists try to get you to divulge your Social Security number, your account numbers, address or other personal information under the guise of a legitimate company with which you may already be doing business. The e-mail directs the user to visit a website where you are asked to update personal information, such as passwords and credit card, Social Security, and financial institution account numbers. The website, however, is bogus and set up only to steal the user’s information.

What if you responded to a phishing e-mail, or if you have questions?

If you are ever concerned that you received a phishing e-mail, or have questions about an e-mail that appears to come from the credit union, please contact us by phone at 574.534.2506 or forward the e-mail in question to us at We’re here to help you!

Legitimate e-mails

You may receive legitimate e-mails from the credit union in the form of information, updates or promotions. However, as stated before, we will never ask for personal information.
