As identity risks continue to evolve and threats continue to plague consumers, Mill City Credit Union’s customers can rest assured knowing they’re protected from the newest identity risks like phishing scams, social media account or email account compromise, tax related identity theft, data breach exposures, and more. According to the Javelin Identity 2013 Fraud Survey Report, identity theft incidents increased with the number of victims in 2013 totaling 13.1 million. Additionally, the report notes that 1 in 4 data breach notification recipients became a victim of identity theft. Lastly, the report recognizes growth in non-card fraud, which nearly tripled in 2013, accounting for $5 billion in fraud. This fraud includes: compromised lines of credit, Internet accounts (e.g., eBay, Amazon) and online payment accounts such as PayPal.
“CyberScout is a true leader in providing cutting-edge services to help consumers protect their identities, especially as we hear of top companies like Home Depot and Target falling victim to breached sensitive customer information,” said Shirley T. Neukom, Chief Financial Officer, Mill City Credit Union. “We are excited to partner with them because of their ability to cover all types of emerging identity concerns – medical, financial, tax-related, and even child, identity theft.”
CyberScout fraud specialists provide high-touch service to victims from the initial call through case resolution. Their expertise covers a range of issues, from proactive consumer education, to document replacement, fraud and credit monitoring, and personalized help to cut through the red tape. Fraud specialists work one-on-one with victims and are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week until resolution is complete.
