Be diligent in protecting yourself, your financial and personal information.

  • Never give out your personal financial information.  White Eagle CU will NEVER ask for your personal information via text, email or unsolicited phone call.   Please never give out your PIN, SSN, DOB or your account number to anyone calling you and asking for it.
  • Do Not give out your online banking information.  Please do not give out your account/password/pin.
  • Ignore online offers for vaccinations and home test kits.  Scammers are trying to get you to buy products that aren’t proven to treat or prevent the Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) — online or in stores.
  • Hang up on robocalls.  Don’t press any numbers. Scammers are using illegal robocalls to pitch everything from scam Coronavirus treatments to work-at-home schemes.
  • Checks:  Don’t respond to texts and emails about checks from the government.  Anyone who tells you they can get you the money now is a scammer.
  • Don’t click on links from sources you don’t know. They could download viruses onto your computer or device.
  • Watch for emails claiming to be from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) or experts saying they have information about the virus. For the most up-to-date information about the Coronavirus, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).
  • Fact-check information. Scammers, and sometimes well-meaning people, share information that hasn’t been verified.
  • Charitable Donations:  Please do your homework.  If someone wants donations in cash, by gift card, or by wiring money, don’t do it.

Thanksgiving and Gratitude

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” – John F Kennedy

Thanksgiving and Gratitude for our members and the communities we serve.

This is the time of year that we take time to acknowledge the things that we are thankful for.  Things like family, friends, health, and also the things we take for granted.  With the current pandemic that we are going through we pray for those that feel isolated and lonely.  We encourage you to reach out to someone you know that is in this position.

Also, we want to thank our members and our communities for allowing us to serve you.  We wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving.  Stay safe and stay healthy.

Best regards, Rick Blue – President
