SWACU Security Alert
We want to make you aware that if you receive a call from our 800 number or any local number that appears to be a SWACU phone number, it may not be a SWACU employee. These callers (Fraudsters) are spoofing the Credit Union phone numbers (numbers masked to look like our number) so that it appears as if it is a legitimate SWACU employee. Please ask for a name and let the caller know you will return their call at SWACU. Hang up and call us at the number listed on our homepage at... www.swacu.org.Please remember we will NEVER ask you for personal information including Debit or Credit Card PIN numbers.
