Phishing Scam Information
The number and sophistication of phishing scams sent out to consumers is continuing to increase dramatically. While online e-commerce is generally very safe, consumers should still be careful about giving out personal financial information over the Internet.
The Anti-Phishing Working Group has compiled a list of recommendations below that you can use to avoid becoming a victim of these scams. Be suspicious of any e-mail with urgent requests for personal financial information.
Phishers typically include upsetting or exciting (but false) statements in their e-mails to get people to react immediately.
They typically ask for information such as usernames, passwords, credit card numbers, social security numbers, etc.
Phishing e-mails are typically NOT personalized, while valid messages from Weber State Credit Union are. Don’t use the link in an e-mail to get to any web page if you suspect the message might not be authentic . Instead, call the company on the telephone, or log onto the website directly by typing in the Web address in your browser.
Avoid filling out forms in e-mail messages that ask for personal financial information.
You should only communicate information such as credit card numbers or account information via a secure website. Always ensure that you’re using a secure website when submitting credit card or other sensitive information via your Web Browser.
To make sure you’re on a secure Web server, check the beginning of the Web address in your browsers address bar – it should be https:// rather than http://
Regularly check you credit union statements to ensure that all transactions are legitimate.

Secure Access Codes
The new release of e-Branch introduces a powerful new security measure, Secure Access Codes. This new process takes the place of challenge questions and personal security images.
Secure Access Codes are six digit numbers that are delivered to you using channels other than online banking. You can request them to be sent to you via e-mail, phone call by an automated attendant or SMS Text (if WSCU does not have your current mobile number, you cannot receive this code by text). The code must be used within 15 minutes of receiving it, after which it will not work.
Each time you access e-Branch via a new computer or mobile device, you will need to go through the Secure Access Code process. Please consult the Quick Start Guide for detailed instructions on using the Secure Access Code during the enrollment process.
What type of Internet browser do I need?
