The Federal Bureau of Investigation warns(opens in a new window) that scammers are taking advantage of uncertainty during the pandemic and finding new ways to try to steal information and money. Be diligent as always, but be especially aware of the following: fake CDC emails, phishing emails, counterfeit treatments or equipment, and fake accounts. By posing as legitimate financial institutions, scammers are deceiving victims into giving up critical information like online banking credentials, full credit and debit card numbers, SMS verification codes and PINs. This new scheme uses advanced spoofing techniques, so the caller and text messages look and sound authentic. Protect yourself from these scams by understanding what you can expect if you receive an email, call or text from Elevations Credit Union. Elevations Credit Union will never:
Ask for your PIN number
Ask for your online banking username or password
Ask for your full debit or credit card number
Call you and offer to send a text verification code to prove it’s Elevations (we don’t send these types of text message codes)
Call us immediately at (800) 429-7626(opens in a new window) if:
You receive an email stating your card was enrolled in a mobile wallet (Samsung Pay®, Apple Pay®, etc.), but you did not enroll
You get a suspicious call — please hang up and call us
You receive a suspicious text message from a full-length phone number — our transaction verification texts come from a short code number
Receive a suspicious email
Be wary of scams(opens in a new window) and suspicious requests during this time. As always, if you are unsure about whether an email, phone call or text message is actually from Elevations, or if you are concerned about potential fraud, please call us at (800) 429-7626(opens in a new window). Additionally, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has many resources(opens in a new window) available to help you.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) announced on Dec. 29, 2020 that it has begun to distribute a second round of economic impact payments (aka stimulus payments or stimulus checks) to millions of Americans who received the first round of payments earlier this year.
Elevations is not receiving any advance notice on when payments will be released to our individual members. You can check the status of your payment using the IRS tool “Get My Payment” available at irs.gov/coronavirus/get-my-payment.(opens in a new window)
According to the Dec. 29 news release(opens in a new window) from the IRS:
No action is required by eligible individuals to receive this second payment.
Taxpayers with direct deposit information on file with the IRS will receive the payment that way. For those without current direct deposit information on file, they will receive the payment as a check or debit card in the mail.
The initial direct deposit payments may begin arriving as early as Dec. 29, 2020 for some and will continue into the week of Jan. 4, 2021.
Some Americans may see the direct deposit payments as pending or as provisional payments in their accounts before the official payment date of Jan. 4, 2021.
Paper checks will begin to be mailed Dec. 30, 2020.
For the latest updates, please visit the IRS website.(opens in a new window)
The IRS also states that people will receive an IRS notice, or letter, after they receive a payment telling them the amount of their payment. If you're unsure if you’ve received a legitimate letter, please visit IRS.gov first to protect against scam artists.
The IRS also provides a reminder on its website that the IRS will not call you, text you, email you or contact you on social media asking for personal or bank account information — even related to the economic impact payments. Also, watch out for emails with attachments or links claiming to have special information about economic impact payments or refunds.
Read our blog(opens in a new window) for more information on scams to watch out for during the coronavirus pandemic.
At Elevations, your deposits are federally insured to at least $250,000 and backed by the full faith and credit of the United States Government through the National Credit Union Administration.(opens in a new window) That means keeping your funds in a deposit account at Elevations is a much safer option than keeping a large sum of cash at home. Elevations remains financially strong and well-positioned to provide solutions for your financial needs.
The IRS has provided a free web portal(opens in a new window) for those who are not required to file tax returns to make sure they get their economic impact payment as quickly and securely as possible. According to their website, if you fall into this category, you will need to provide your bank account number, type and routing number, if you have one. To provide your Elevations account information for your payment, be sure to have the Elevations routing number on hand (our routing number is 307074580), type of account and your full 13-digit ACH account number. Pick one of the options below to find your account number:
Log in to online banking, select the account and then select “Account Details” to view the ACH number (this is your account number) — watch our video tutorial to see how(opens in a new window)
Log in to the mobile app, select the account and then select “Details” to view the ACH number (this is your account number)
For your checking account number, identify the 13-digit account number at the bottom of your checks
