Credit Card Security Phone Fraud

There are once again several companies (VISA and Mastercard) who are being misrepresented by fraudsters who claim to be “Loss Provision Security Officers”.  They will not ask for your card number most times (as the number and your address and name are already in their possession).  They will sound professional and tell you to call the number on the back of your card for verification.  What they will ask for is the three digits on the back of your card.  Do NOT release this information.  Take down their information and call the company directly.  If it is a legitimate inquiry they will not hesitate to have you verify their information.



The Winnipeg Police Credit Union values your privacy-we do not sell, trade or forward your email address or name to anyone.
