PYM: Card Skimming

In light of recent events, SVCU encourages all members to familiarize themselves with the “Protect Your Money” section of our website.

To reduce your risk of skimming we suggest members always “insert” instead of “swipe” their MemberCard in POS terminals at businesses. Your MemberCard should never leave your possession. Use of white label ATMs is another area of increased risk (and expense). Try to use Canadian Credit Union ATMs and in their absence an ATM at a financial institution branch (as video surveillance does reduce your risk).

If you have recently “swiped” your MemberCard, changing your PIN can help avoid being defrauded in the future after the collection has taken place.
