Online Security & Fraud Protection

Beware of any scams related to COVID-19. If you receive calls, emails, or other communications claiming to be from the Treasury Department and offering COVID-19 related grants or stimulus payments in exchange for personal financial information, or an advance fee, or charge of any kind, including the purchase of gift cards, please do not respond. These are scams. 

Please be aware of phishing scams trying to collect your personal information. Do not provide personal information, account numbers or PINs over the phone or through text message. Kinetic Credit Union never contacts you proactively to ask for this information. 

Visit the Federal Trade Commission’s website for the latest information. Kinetic Credit Union has substantial measures in place to protect you against theft and fraud. In addition to taking strong security measures to safeguard your accounts, Kinetic also provides helpful tips, tools, and resources so you can better protect yourself from fraud and enjoy greater peace of mind.  Learn more about how our systems work so you can better protect yourself.
