Recently Home Depot announced card numbers had been exposed during a data breach of debit and credit card transactions from April 2014 on. While we cannot protect you against third-party security breaches, we can help to protect you against fraudulent activity if that information is compromised.
We work closely with our debit and credit providers, as well as our financial system processor, to have the highest quality encryption available for your personal information. We flag and monitor accounts to prevent fraudulent activity. We also will review and correct any fraud that might occur on a member's account. New debit/credit cards will be reissued to affected members (at no cost) to help prevent further exposure (cardholders will be notified via mail if a new card will be reissued).
As always, GKCU reminds you to regularly check your accountsto ensure there are no unauthorized transactions. Signing up for our free online and mobile services is a great way to stay connected. When you can, sign for transactions (vs. entering a PIN). When ordering online make sure the website starts with https:// (the "s" indicates it is a secured website) and try to avoid using public "Wi-Fi" connections for making purchases from smartphones. Finally, if you notice any suspicious activity, notify us immediately (or if after hours our debit/credit provider at 866-820-8775).
