Fraud Prevention

Signal Financial Federal Credit Union is committed to ensuring account privacy and security. In addition to having SSL encryption for our eBanking site, we also encrypt pages collecting sensitive information on www.signalfinancialfcu.org. This was done to better protect you against phishing schemes that use fraudulent websites. Part of our privacy and security commitment is accomplished through member education. You can protect your private information by practicing good security habits and reporting any suspicious contacts either via email, phone or the U.S. Postal Service.

What You Need to Know

Signal Financial FCU does not contact our members via email to verify or request account numbers, PINs or other security information. If you receive an email requesting personal information, please DO NOT respond to it with any personal information and forward the email to memberservice@signalfinancialfcu.org.

We are continually improving our infrastructure to defend against emerging threats, and would like to remind you that if it isn’t an SSL connection, it isn’t Signal Financial!
