    We believe it is important for your voice to be heard in local, state, and federal elections. As of 2018, 58% of Washingtonians are members of a credit union, and when credit union members get involved in an election, it signals to legislators that credit union policy matters.

    Credit Unions benefit main street, not wall street. An independent analysis by ECONorthwest found credit unions delivered a $5.1 billion boost to Washington's economy! In fact, members of credit unions in Washington State had $352 million in … more

    How to Spot a Skimmer

    What is a Credit Card Skimmer?

    Skimmers are devices that enable thieves to steal card data and use if for fraudulent transactions.

    These devices are created to look exactly like the ATM or gas pump the criminals are targeting. Once they are attached, the device reads the magnetic stripe on your credit or debit card when you slide it into a car reader. The skimmer stores the card number, expiration date and cardholder’s name.

    Do Skimmers work on a Chip Card?

    Yes. The magnetic strips are also on chip cards, so they are vulnerable to skimmers as well.

    Security Alert for North Coast Members

    Parts.Common.Body.Summary.cshtml – The template for summary of a content item's body.

    5/28/2020

    Dear Members,

    We have recently discovered a “Skimmer” was placed on the ATMs at our Sedro-Woolley and Mount Vernon branch on week end dates in late April and early May. A “Skimmer” is a card reader that can be disguised to look like part of an ATM. The skimmer attachment collects card numbers and PIN codes, which are then replicated into counterfeit cards.

    Last weekend “Skimmer Cards” were used to attempt cash withdrawals from a Seattle ATM and for a variety of purchases. Our security system stopped the majority of these fraudulent transactions. However, some fraudulent … more
