    North Coast Credit Union Offers Small, 12-Month DACA and Citizenship Loans

    For over 80 years, it's been our mission at North Coast Credit Union to work with our members to help them achieve their financial goals.

    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,

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
