Fraud Prevention

As technology innovation increases, so does the risk of becoming a victim of fraud. Identity thieves and hackers are always looking for new opportunities, and they target everyone. In fact, all a fraudster requires is access to a few pieces of information for an individual to become a victim of financial loss or have their identity stolen.

WFCU is here to help by providing our members with information regarding potential fraud situations. If you receive an irregular call or message from your financial institution that is unscheduled or suspicious, always remember to:

  • Verify who you are speaking with
  • Be mindful of inaccurate information or lack of information
  • Suggest an in-person discussion for sensitive information

With fraud attempts on the rise among financial institutions across Canada, it’s important to remember a handful of helpful tips to ensure you can identify a scam and protect your information.
