CTCU news


Please be diligent in protecting your accounts from scammers.  There is an increase of scammers posing as investigators of financial institution fraud.  They explain you should withdraw cash or wire money to a ‘safe’ account outside of your financial institution.  In recent situations the scammer asks their victim to deposit cash into a crypto-currency machine.

CTCU is a secure and sound financial institution.  Government agencies will never contact a member to participate in any investigation of fraud.  Please contact the credit union yourself at 847-662-2050 and ask for a Branch Manager if you have questions or concerns.
