  1. Fraudulent Delta Community Official Checks

    Help protect yourself from becoming a victim of fraud. Delta Community Credit Union is aware that our Official Checks have been recently counterfeited and are in circulation. We encourage you to verify any official check that you receive before you negotiate the item to prevent possible losses.

    Take note of the following steps to further protect yourself:
     
    • Counterfeit checks may be printed as Cashier's Checks. Please note that Delta Community Credit Union does not issue Cashier's Checks. If you are unsure about a check, please call our toll-free number at 800-544-3328 or locally at 404-715-4725 for assistance.
    • If you receive an unsolicited check through FedEx or U.S. Priority Mail from an unknown sender, you should be suspicious. Use extreme caution in negotiating such items as they are often counterfeit.
    • If you sold something on the internet, follow best practice. Never wire "excess funds" back to an unknown buyer for any reason. If you receive any check for an amount over your asking price, be suspicious.
    • If you receive a counterfeit check, you may file a report with the Federal Trade Commission at www.ftc.gov or the U.S. Postal Inspector's Office at postalinspectors.uspis.gov
