Keeping your personal information is a top priority for us, and your help in preventing any type of fraud also requires your attentiveness and careful watch.
We had reports of members getting a call or text from a number that looks like it’s coming from Foothill and being asked to divulge personal information. Please do not fall for this scam. In fact, Foothill will never call or text you asking for your username, password, security codes, or any personal information to access your account.
Scammers have recently been targeting Zelle users (and other peer-t0-peer money transferring services) because of the ease and speed of the transactions made. A phone call or text is used to lure unsuspected members into giving up their personal information.
As technology evolves, so do the tactics performed by these scammers. When in doubt, hang up (or don’t reply to the text) and give us a call directly at 626-445-0950. Also, it’s not a bad idea to set alerts within online banking to monitor your account.
