Additionally, if you deliberately made a transaction that doesn’t appear correct on your statement, you may dispute it.

- If necessary, UCCU representatives will also ensure you receive a replacement card as soon as possible.
Actions for Fraud Victims
When responding to any type of fraud threat, the best way to minimize both the potential damage and your own liability is to move quickly, document everything, and contact the right authorities.
Keep a written record of everything that’s happening, including detailed accounts of conversations you have with authorities and financial institutions.
Report what’s happened to the police or other proper authorities, providing any documentation you collected. Get a copy of your police report to keep the phone number of your fraud investigator handy so you can reference it with others working on your case.
Alert your financial institutions and close any compromised accounts. If you’ve had checks stolen, be sure to close the checking account. Stopping Payment isn’t enough. You can expect collection notices for stolen checks, so be on the lookout and respond to each one.
If you suspect an identity thief has filed a change of your address with the post office or has used the mail to commit credit or bank fraud, notify your local post office immediately.
Call and report any fraudulent use of your Social Security number.
To initiate a fraud investigation with the DMV, fill out their complaint form and send supporting documents with the completed form to the nearest DMV investigation office. You can also call the DMV to see if a license has ever been issued to anyone else in your name or visit your local DMV to request a new license number. If available in your state, request a driver’s license number different than your Social Security number.
If a civil judgment has been entered in your name for actions taken by your fraudster, contact the court where the judgment was entered and report that you are a victim of identity theft. If you are wrongfully prosecuted for criminal charges, contact the state Department of Justice and the FBI.
To set up a fraud alert call any of the three credit reporting agencies to ask that your account include a statement referencing the possibility of fraud. By law, each agency is required to alert the other two agencies when fraud alerts are set up.
