Receipt of Fraudulent Checks
Orlando Credit Union will not send you an Orlando Credit Union logo imprinted check to be used for the purpose of “Purchase Training Equipment.” Such checks are often counterfeit. DO NOT attempt to CASH this product. Please contact Orlando Credit Union at 1.800.953.4567 to verify the legitimacy of the check.
Do NOT provide online banking credentials as a means to receive what you believe to be loan proceeds or disbursements. Legitimate lenders will deposit funds via ACH or provide a check. If you are asked to pay a large fee in order to receive these funds then the transaction is not legitimate. Legitimate lenders may charge a small application fee, typically around $35 or $50, and in some cases, this fee may be integrated into the loan.
Fraudulent Sweepstakes Winner
If you receive a communication by:
- Phone call
- Text message
…that you are the winner of a sweepstakes with a check enclosed with the Orlando Credit Union logo on it and a request for you to contact the sweepstakes drawing organization so that they may assist you with managing the tax implications from your winnings. DO NOT contact the sweepstakes reference. This is usually a fraudulent set of actions. Instead, please contact Orlando Credit Union at 1.800.953.4567, inform us of your circumstance and we will determine the legitimacy of the interaction.
