Ok, most, if not all of us, are mired deep into the holiday shopping season, scrambling to purchase gifts for loved ones, friends, peers, and pets. It's a fun time of the year -- a bit stressful but still fun to give. And today, most of us are using our credit cards shopping at the mall or online. It's so convenient, quick, and trackable -- all upsides for the consumer.
The downside for the consumer, however, is that it's also prime shopping season for fraudsters. With past years' breeches and the growing CNP threat, it can be scary. But there are a few fraud-fighting tips out there that folks can incorporate in their holiday shopping ventures. That said, we invited CO-OP's Product Marketing Manager Amanda Atcheson on the show to provide us -- and credit unions -- with five fraud-fighting tips for protection. These tips can continue enhancing your credit union's value toward your members as a primary financial resource. Check it out and let us know what you think ... and what you're doing, as well.
