CU System briefs (07/31/2012)
  • RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. (8/1/12)--The police department in Russellville, Ark., Friday advised area residents not to fall for  a text scam under the heading "Credit Union Alert." The text states a credit union alert has been issued and the recipient's credit or debit card canceled. It directs callers to a phone number and asks for their financial information.  The message, said the department, is a fraud.  Police reiterated that recipients should not give any information, and instead "always hang up and contact the creditor back directly to verify the call." It cautioned to find the creditor's number on a verified source, such as balance statements, the back of the credit card or online.  The department received several calls from concerned recipients (The Courier News July 28) …
  • BISMARCK, N.D. (8/1/12)--CU on the Road tour, part of the Credit Union Association of the Dakotas' (CUAD)  awareness campaign, visited the North Dakota State Fair in Minot last week. On Tuesday, CUAD President/CEO Robbie Thompson and Director of Strategic Initiatives Kristie Heit greeted fairgoers alongside the CU on the Road vehicle at the entry gates, handing out credit union information and 1,500 stickers that said "Credit Unions R Cool" to visitors, including these four teens. The CU on the Road vehicle was filled with balloons for a "guess the number" prize game. On Wednesday, Co-op Day at the Fair, volunteers including Heit and Minot area credit unions GEM FCU, Prairie FCU and Town & Country CU, served more than 800 guests breakfast--pancakes, sausage and fruit. At the credit union's booth in the Co-op tent, volunteers talked to and handed stickers out to 1,200 additional visitors. More than 1,000 people attempted to guess the number of balloons in the CU on the Road vehicle. One person guessed the number--192--and won a $100 prize. Later, the coop and credit union volunteers served more than 3,000 free ice cream cones to thank members for their support. (Photo provided by the Credit Union Association of the Dakotas) …
