At Northeast Credit Union we are committed to the protection of your personal and financial information.
Here are the facts, according to Equifax. The breach lasted from mid-May through July. The hackers accessed people's names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and, in some instances, driver's license numbers. They also stole credit card numbers for about 209,000 people and dispute documents with personal identifying information for about 182,000 people. And they grabbed personal information of people in the UK and Canada too.
At NECU, we DO NOT use Equifax as a service and members can be assured that as a standard practice Northeast Credit Union actively monitors the activity on their accounts 24/7 to protect them from fraud. Members will be contacted if they need to take action.
