Take fast action to protect yourself from fraud.

Anyone in the Pittsburgh area who reads or watches the news knows that Identity Theft has been on the rise in recent years. At Clearview, we take the matter very seriously. If you think your credit union information has been compromised by cyber-criminals, call us immediately at 1-800-926-0003. You should also take the following steps to prevent damage to your finances:

  • Review your credit reports: Check your reports from all three credit bureaus — Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion — for any inaccuracies or unusual activity. If you have Absolute Checking®, access your 3-in-1 credit report through eClub in digital banking.*
  • Freeze or put a fraud alert on your credit reports.​ If you notice any inaccuracies on your report, contact the credit grantor or file a dispute with either the credit grantor or the credit bureau. You can place an alert or freeze your credit by contacting each of the bureaus: Read more on the difference between a fraud alert and a credit freeze.

    Remember that if you find that you need to lift your credit freeze, you’ll have to contact all three bureaus again.
  • Close fraudulent accounts. If you see any accounts on your credit report that you did not open, call the security or fraud department of the company that holds the accounts. Closing the accounts immediately will prevent the thief from causing more damage to your credit.
  • File a report. You should file a report with the Federal Trade Commission online or calling the FTC Identity Theft Hotline at 1-877-ID-THEFT. Also file reports with your local police department as well as with the police department in the community the crime was committed.
  • Helpful links: Here is contact information for the three major credit bureaus and others who may be able to help you: Federal Trade Commission's Identity Theft Site; Better Business Bureau; Annual Credit Report; Equifax; Experian; TransUnion
