Members will be alerted to fraudulent use of financial information, medical records, Social Security Numbers, and other personal details
Hudson River Financial Credit Union today announced a partnership with CyberScout™ , the nation’s premier identity management and data risk management services provider, to offer credit union members FraudScout® credit and fraud monitoring. FraudScout provides Hudson River Financial Credit Union members a service that goes beyond classic credit monitoring to provide comprehensive fraud, credit, Internet, and card monitoring. The service offers peace of mind to users by quickly alerting them of any fraudulent activity, helping to avoid further identity and reputation damage. If fraud is detected, members are comforted knowing they have 24/7 access to fraud resolution specialists,
FraudScout monitors a full-range of credit and non-credit information that’s used to commit fraud. It scours public and private databases, social media channels, and the Internet’s black market for the presence and possible misuse of customer identities and credit data. If FraudScout detects potentially unscrupulous activity, consumers receive an alert followed by access to around-the-clock full resolution support from CyberScout experienced fraud specialists who will help them every step of the way.
The service will be made available to members in three different bundle options. Additional services like credit and non-credit information monitoring and identity theft reimbursement insurance, add to the already sound peace of mind members can enjoy by taking advantage of these services.
Most fraud activity takes place under the radar. Personal data is taken from social media networks. Malware on a computer captures personal information. Lines of credit are opened with stolen data. A data breach exposes email addresses, passwords and other uniquely identifiable information. The damage from all of these exposures can be disastrous, but FraudScout keeps a watchful eye on both credit information and your members’ online reputations.
