Equifax Breach

Equifax, a national credit reporting agency, recently experienced a significant compromise of consumers’ personal data. This is not a Georgia Power Valdosta Federal United Credit Union security issue and we have not received specific information from Equifax about members who may be affected; however, the security of your member data remains a top priority for us. Therefore, we wanted to make you aware of the facts as well as recommend resources to help you respond to this event.

Equifax has created a website for the purpose of helping consumers determine if their information has been potentially compromised. Equifax is also offering one-year of free credit monitoring services. You can visit equifaxsecurity2017.com for more information. 

To further protect yourself from potential fraud and/or identity theft, we recommend that you regularly review all your banking accounts and credit reports for unusual activity. If you see unusual activity in your GPVFCU accounts, please contact us.

You can also visit Identitytheft.gov/databreach to learn more about how to protect your identity in the event of a data breach. If you have any additional questions, please let us know by contacting the credit union.
