A large crowd attended our 2018 Annual Meeting, which was held on March 13th at JERA Building.

Saving with Mandy and Randy
Lakeside Employees CU is sponsoring a 31 page booklet for all Second Graders in Humphreys County. Saving with Mandy and Randy was designed as a supplement that easily integrates into the core curriculum that primary teachers cover. It addresses students' competency in mathematics, economics, civics, and language arts. With this curriculum program, second grade students use the workbook provided to learn vocabulary words that are related to saving. The workbook also offers practice activities for students including coin identification, counting, adding and subtracting cents and dollars, the difference between wants and needs, the importance of saving including using saving accounts and completing a deposit ticket for a saving account. By sponsoring the program, we are reaching our children at impressionable ages. If we can help them learn good money habits right from the start and raise their level of financial responsibility, it will pay big dividends for them and the community alike.
What is Identity Theft?
Identity theft is a crime in which an imposter gains access to another’s personal information, such as Social security or credit card numbers, and uses them for personal gain. It might be the result of a stolen purse, stolen mail, Documents taken from trash, a data breach just like the one that happen at Target, computer virus, or telephone scam. For a small fee of $1.95 everybody in your household could be covered, that’s the cost of a family pizza over a year’s time. The$1.95 comes directly out of your checking account, contact the Credit Union today and make sure your Identity is protected.

WARNING: Do not give out your debit/credit card numbers to anyone!!!!
In order to protect you from fraud, you may receive a phone call from Visa company (Fidelity/Falcon). Fidelity/Falcom may ask you to verify some recent purchases that you may have made. Fidelity will never ask you for your account numbers. They already have them on file
. But, in order to identify you as the cardholder, they may ask to verify the last four digits of your social security number. If you are not comfortable giving out this information, please ask them if you can verify your address instead. In order to help us protect you from fraud and identity theft, please contact the credit union if you feel that you have given out vital information to anyone about your accounts.

Protect your checks from fraud!
At Lakeside Credit Union we take every precaution to protect your account and your checks from fraud. Your checks are printed on paper with embedded security features to protect them against alteration and counterfeiting, and precautions are taken in the handling and delivery of your checks.
You can make a difference. Take action to prevent criminals from getting their hands on your checks and to safeguard your check’s integrity:
- Make the post office box your choice for outgoing mail, rather than your home mailbox.
- Treat your deposit slip as if it were a check. Remember, your account number is printed on deposit slips.
- Check your statements carefully against your check register. Duplicate checks may prove helpful by providing you with a record of every check you write.
- Avoid writing checks with pencil or erasable ink.
- Print, don’t sign, your name when writing your return address on envelopes. A signature on the envelope can be copied and forged.
- Report lost or stolen checks and lost or stolen debit cards immediately.
- Don’t give your account number over the phone to anyone you don’t know.
- Don’t include your driver’s license number or Social Security number on your checks.
- Don’t write your credit card number on your check.
- Don’t leave large, blank spaces in the check box or the amount line. Start the written dollar amounts as far to the left as possible. Draw a line between the cents value and the right side of the dollar line.
