Phishing and Fraud

Phishing attempts are becoming more prevalent in banking.  Phishing is generally used to solicit personal information to commit fraud, such as Identity Theft, Account Take Over, or Credit Card Fraud.  Be aware and learn to recognize the signs of attempted fraud and you can protect your financial assets.  PLCU will never contact you by e-mail and require you to click on a link to "update" your information. 

If you suspect you've received a fraudulent e-mail, supposedly representing Point Loma Credit Union, forward it to us immediately at
