America's Christian Credit Union wants to insure your privacy and the safety of your account information. The following is a brief list of protection tips:
Never give your account and routing information over the phone, or to anyone you do not know.
Guard your deposit slips. Never use your deposit slip for "scrap" paper or notes.
Properly store or dispose of canceled checks.
If your checkbook is lost or stolen, immediately inform us – call 1-800-343-6328
When traveling for a period of time, it is wise to leave your checkbook at home and locked away. Use your ATM – Debit Card – Credit Card while traveling. Always place travel notices on your account before traveling.
Always write checks using non-erasable ink pens, typewriters or printers - never pencil.
Write the dollar amount in both numbers and letters, as far to the left in the allotted space as possible and draw a line through the unused space to the right of the letters and numbers to prevent additions.
When writing the payee name on the "Pay to the Order of" line, make sure the name is spelled out completely (do not use abbreviations) so it cannot be altered.
Balance or reconcile your checkbook register when you receive your monthly bank statements.
