Stolen identity is something we all worry about, especially
when making online purchases or giving out information to the
wrong people. It can happen to anyone at anytime so here are
a few ways to be prepared if it happens to you. Here are some
ways that can tell you if your identity has been compromised:
You’re denied!
If your credit card is denied, find out why right away

This could mean that someone made changes in your
name and went shopping, leaving you with the bill.
· Unauthorized inquires.
If you see inquiries on your credit reports that you didn’t
make, that could be a sign that someone is trying to open
credit in your name.
· Sudden drop in credit score.
An unexplained drop in your credit score is another sign

Many dealers advertise low rates, but what’s the catch? Most of the time you are
better off financing with Sheboygan Area Credit Union at our normal finance rates.
At the dealership you have a choice to take a rebate (ex. $500, $1,500 or $2,500) or
the rate (ex. 0%, 2.9% or 3.9% APR). Your best choice is to take the rebate and go
with Sheboygan Area Credit Union financing as opposed to going with dealer financing.

As summer approaches, many people travel for vacations and holidays
and like to bring their debit/credit cards along! We have some tips to
keep your mind at ease while using these when you travel.
Let Us know When You Travel
One of the best ways to make sure your card won’t get blocked is
to let us know the dates of travel as well as the location.
Clean Out Your Wallet
Make sure you don’t travel with too many debit and credit cards,
as it could increase the risk of one of them being lost or stolen.
Also make sure you are aware of your withdraw and purchase
limits before you leave.
Monitor Your Account
It is very important to keep track of what you purchase and how
much you are spending. Enroll in online services, or frequently
call the credit union while away to make sure you don’t have
unexplained charges.
