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 across the country. Verify any official check that you receive before you negotiate the item to prevent possible losses.
Also, be aware of the following steps to protect yourself:
- The counterfeit checks may be printed as "Cashiers" Checks. Delta Community does not issue Cashiers Checks. Call toll-free, 800-544-3328 or 404-715-4725 for assistance.
- If you receive an unsolicited check either through FedEx or U.S. Priority Mail from an unknown person, you should be suspicious. Use extreme caution in negotiating such items as they are usually counterfeit.
- If you sold something on the internet, beware. Never wire "excess funds" back to an unknown buyer for any reason! If you receive any check for over your asking price of any item, it is a suspect item.
- If you receive one of these counterfeit items, file a report with the Federal Trade Commission at www.ftc.gov or the U.S. Postal Inspector's Office at postalinspectors.uspis.gov.
