Home Depot Data Breach Alert
Home Depot has confirmed that a data breach occurred on their payment data systems in their stores in the United States and Canada and dates back to April 2014.
Home Depot is offering free services including credit monitoring, identity monitoring, and an identity theft insurance policy for anyone who shopped at a store since April 2014. Currently, they believe online shopping was not impacted. For more information about these services, please visit
According to Krebs on Security, a massive amount of credit and debit card numbers went on sale on the black market September 2nd. Some news outlets estimate that as many as 60 million debit and credit card accounts were compromised. In addition, reports have mentioned that this is a variant of the same malware that caused the Target breach, affecting 40 million card numbers, in 4Q 2013.
We will be closely monitoring accounts for suspicious transactions and will communication additional information as it becomes available. In addition, members who shopped at Home Depot during this timeframe should also be monitoring their accounts.

Annual Meeting Winners
Card Cracking Scam Targets Younger Members
Cash-strapped college students are being recruited to participate in a scam referred to as “card cracking.” Using ATM/debit cards and PINs willingly provided by the students, fraudsters deposit fraudulent checks to the students’ accounts. The funds are subsequently withdrawn by the fraudsters with the students receiving a portion of the funds for their participation.
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.

Protect your checks from fraud!
At Lakeside Employees 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.
Customer Identification Program
Important Information About Opening A New Account
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism
and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account.
What this means for you: When you request to open an account, we will ask for your full name including middle name, your physical address, date of birth, social security number or tax identification number, or other information that will allow us to identify you. We will require a photo identification issued by a government agency, which would typically be your driver’s license.
Lakeside Credit Union may also obtain a credit report upon your request for additional products and services. Based on your credit rating, Lakeside Credit Union may not offer you all of the services and products available.
