Protect yourself from fraud

Attention: open in a new window. Print

Warwick Credit Union is partnered with Western Union to help send your money to friends and family safely.

We encourage you to NEVER send money to someone you have not met in person. Here are some tips to avoid being scammed:

  • Do not transfer money to anyone who asks you to send them money: Scammers sometimes encourage people to transfer money.
  • For an emergency situation you haven’t confirmed.
  • For an online purchase.
  • For anti-virus protection.
  • For a deposit or payment on a rental property.
  • To claim lottery or prize winnings.
  • To pay taxes.
  • For a donation to charity.
  • For a mystery shopping assignment.
  • For a job opportunity.
  • For a credit card or loan fee.
  • To resolve an immigration matter.

Transferring funds overseas often involves a network of correspondent and intermediary banks. Once funds are transferred, it is often difficult (if at all possible) to cancel or recall transactions. BE ALERT!
