How To Protect Yourself from Scammers and 'Check Washing'


ABC News’ Whit Johnson shares new warnings about “check washing,” where criminals steal checks from the mail, remove the ink and then forge fake information to cash in the money.

As a member of Merck Employees FCU, you should make yourself aware of the products and services we offer that could help protect you from these types of scams. For example, instead of mailing a deposit to the credit union, you can use mobile deposit from your mobile phone or tablet. Need to pay a bill, use the credit union's bill pay service or set up the payment directly through the merchant so that it is delivered electronically and none of your personal information can be stolen through the mail. 

If you need assistance with any of these types of products, the credit union is always available to assist. Please contact our Member Services department today.
