The financial community is seeing an aggressive increase in fraud. Be cautious of social engineering and, specifically, phishing attacks. Phishing is when a fraudster sends an email or text from a seemingly reputable company in an effort to retrieve your private information. Always be skeptical of any communication from someone you don’t know. Never click on links from unsolicited emails or texts. If you are in doubt about an email, text, or phone call you have received, contact AppleTree Credit Union directly at 414.546.7800.
