At 7 17 Credit Union, we are committed to providing you with the safest online and mobile banking experience that we can by implementing the most sophisticated security technology. We work daily to ensure that your information is safeguarded when you use any of our digital banking services.
 
We also want you to be aware of the measures that you can take to safeguard your information, whether using your personal computer, laptop or any mobile device. That’s why we have compiled a list of best practices and safety tips for all of your electronic banking and communications.  By visiting www.717cu.com/bestpractices, you can review safety information for online and mobile banking, mobile devices, and email as well as fraud prevention tips. They only take a few minutes to review, so we encourage you to read them at your leisure.
 
Even with these best practices in place, there have unfortunately been instances when 7 17 Members have fallen victim to scams because they have shared their online banking credentials with fraudsters. Here are a few quick tips to keep your information safe:
 
  • If you did not request to be contacted, do not give your account information or Online Banking login credentials to anyone who is contacting you by phone or online.
  • If you receive a phone call, email, text, or other electronic communication that is suspicious, do not give out any personal or confidential information.
  • If you feel that your account information may have been compromised, please contact 7 17.
It’s important to note that 7 17 will never call you or text message you requesting your NetWorth24 Online Banking Username or Password, your account numbers, your social security number or other private, identifying information.

It’s in everyone’s best interest that we work together to make your banking easy, safe, and secure.
