Important Reminder About Avoiding Fraud
Don't forget! GNCU will never contact you requesting personal information. Also, be aware of potential scams asking you to send funds to a third party, and don’t deposit or spend funds that were unsolicited or unexpected. If you have questions or concerns about your GNCU account, call (800) 421-6674 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Or learn more about protecting yourself against fraud here.
