Line of Credit Loan Reviews
Our policy requires that we review line of credit loans every two years. We started the most recent review in January, 2016. This review will require that we run a current credit report for each maker of the loan and compare it to the loan documents we have on file. We may need to contact you to get updated employment, income, or other information so that the review of your loan can be completed and we can make our decision on renewing your loan. We appreciate your patience with this process.

Identity Theft Help
Contact the credit union at any time for assistance in avoiding identity theft, or if you feel that you are a victim. The credit union's data processor, Fiserv, also offers a consumer credit monitoring program called AlertMe to which you can subscribe with Fiserv for a monthly fee. This service monitors your credit report daily and if any suspect activity is noticed, Fiserv staff will notify you and help you with resolution of any problems.
Please note that the incidence of identity theft, especially by an Internet scam called phishing, or over the telephone, called vishing, is on the rise. Phishers usually operate in one of two manners--by email, where the message makes you believe that something is wrong and the phisher will ask for your personal information (such as account, social security and/or credit/debit card numbers or passwords/PINs) and claim that if you don't give it, your services may be interrupted; and by a fake website that looks almost identical to websites you may have used in the past. To verify that the website you are visiting is valid, look for the locked padlock icon on the bottom of your browser screen. If the padlock is not there, the site is not a trusted, secured site. Vishers contact you over the telephone to try to obtain the same sort of information.
NEVER enter personal information on a non-secure site or give out personal information via email or telephone. If you have questions about how to protect yourself, your identity theft and your accounts, please contact the credit union.
Show Me Credit Union and the National Credit Union Association will never ask you for personal information via email or Internet. If you are contacted via telephone by someone claiming to be with the credit union, ask him/her for contact information and call him/her back on the phone numbers you have for the credit union to verify that you are really talking with the credit union before you discuss your account. Please let us know if you have any questions or if you feel you have been victimized by a phishing scam. The Missouri Attorney General's office is also very helpful with cases of phishing.
Monitor your credit by requesting a free credit report from www.annualcreditreport.com, a website sponsored by the federal government. You may get one free report per year per credit bureau.
Any check you wish to cash or deposit which is for an amount of $2500.00 or more may be held for 2 business days or more before funds are available. This is to protect your account status in case the check is returned to us as insufficient funds or refer to maker.

Rush Shipment Fee Change
Effective 2/1/11 the fee for an rush (overnight express) shipment of documents, plastic cards or packages will be a minimum of $25.00 per shipment. We regret that we are forced to increase this fee to our members due to increasing postal and other shipping methods rate increases.
Credit and Debit Card Fraud
Fraud is on the rise in the plastic card area. Several of our credit and debit cards were compromised due to a data breach at a payment processor last year. We contacted our affected members to advise of the potential for fraud and cancelled and replaced the cards with a new number.
Help protect yourself by frequently monitoring your credit card activity on EZCardInfo. A link to that site is on our homepage. For debit cards, sign up for our free online or telephone service and use it to monitor your checking account activity. While you do have limited liability if proven fraud is committed on your account, it is your responsibility to monitor your activity and tell the credit union quickly if you see any fraud has occurred.
Contact the credit union if you have questions. We will do everything possible to safeguard your accounts.
