A reminder for CHOICE REWARDS cardholders

CHOICE REWARDS cardholders are reminded not to disclose personal or financial information to anyone inquiring over the phone or the Internet.

CUETS Financial, the issuer of CHOICE REWARDS credit cards to credit union members, advised that several CHOICE REWARDS cardholders were recently contacted by email and told about a non-existent program called ‘Cash Points.’ The cardholders were asked to update their credit card account information to win 1,000 points. These emails are fraudulent. By clicking on the link within the email, cardholders were taken to a fake website where they were asked to enter their social insurance number, mother’s maiden name, credit card number and CVC number (the security code on the back of a credit card).

If you are a CHOICE REWARDS cardholder and you receive an email such as this, delete it immediately. Do not click on the link and do not send any of your personal information. As a cardholder, please remember that you will never be asked for personal information by phone or over the Internet.
