Identity Theft Awareness
Think you don’t need identity theft protection? Think again.
Identity Theft is consistently among the top complaints to the Federal Trade Commission each year. Rampant data breaches, impacting millions of records, are putting consumers at great risk of identity theft. It can happen to anyone – regardless of your age and income, where you live, or how careful you are.
Restoring your identity on your own can be time-consuming and stressful. After a while, some people give up, leaving them to contend with the aftermath of identity theft for years to come, including fraudulent bills, collections activity, damaged credit and even criminal records.
Effective June 1, 2020, NAFT Federal Credit Union is delighted to provide identity theft recovery and mobile phone coverage as part of our Advantage Share accounts. We have partnered with NXG Strategies – a leader in identity theft remediation and breach response – to provide you with access to valuable services to address fraud caused by identity theft if it happens to you or your eligible family member, whether it is related to your account with us or not. Plus, primary account holders receive mobile phone coverage to help you manage repairs or replacement to your mobile phone. These services include:
