Security of Your Financial Information Is Our Top Priority
At Justice Federal, we take a proactive approach to protecting the safety and confidentiality of our Member’s accounts by ensuring that we are using the latest and most secure technology available. We take great strides to safeguard our Member data with layers of security, including multiple firewalls and monitors, to protect us from vulnerabilities.
We encourage Members to routinely change their passwords and to continue to take proactive steps towards protecting their personal information from fraud. We also encourage Members to be cautious of what sites they visit, sign on to, and what links they click since these may be unsecure.
Knowing how to use the Internet safely and securely can be your best weapon against fraud, identity theft, malware, and computer viruses. Again, we encourage you to practice good online safety habits ―
- • Guard Your Personal Information
In an effort to steal your personal information, fraudsters will do everything they can to appear trustworthy. Justice Federal will NEVER ask you for your personal information ─ password, social security number, or credit card via email.
- • Watch for Fraudulent Websites/Deceptive URLs
A phishing email will usually try to redirect you to a fraudulent website. Some fraudsters will insert a fake browser address bar over the real one, making it appear that you’re on a legitimate website. Look for "https" to precede our web address (or URL) before you enter personal information. The "s" stands for secure.
- • Monitor Your Justice Federal Accounts. Check your account periodically for suspicious activity.
- • Be Smart About Your Password. Change passwords often and use unique passwords that include letters, numbers, and symbols.
- • Be Web Wise. Think Before You Act.

Not What It’s Cracked Up To Be
It may seem innocent, you see a post on a social media site announcing a contest, or, maybe a webpage that claims to have a celebrity affiliation is offering a gift card giveaway. The variations are endless, but here’s the tip-off that fraud is afoot. At some point, you’re asked for your bank account information, PIN number, or online banking credential. That’s when you can bank on the fact that those “innocent” offers aren’t what they’re cracked up to be, instead you stumbled upon a scam called “card cracking.”
Justice Federal Credit Union takes a proactive approach to protecting the safety and security of our Member’s by keeping our software up-to-date with the latest technologies. In an effort to accomplish this, we would like to remind you of the importance of keeping your web browser updated.
According to Equifax, 143 million American consumers were exposed to a data breach. The breach lasted from mid-May through July. The hackers accessed people’s names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and, in some cases, 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.
Your Online Banking Password
A strong password is one of the easiest ways to protect your online financial information. A unique password for all of your online accounts makes it harder on cybercriminals to gain access to the information they are looking for.
