Over the past few days, we have received reports of fraudulent activity affecting MCCU members.  

The scam involves a phone call from a scammer spoofing a MCCU phone number (it will look like it is coming from MCCU). The scammer states they are calling to confirm debit card transactions on the member's account (they have been referencing Walmart, but it could be any merchant).  The scammer then proceeds to try to obtain online banking login credentials, PINs, and SSN information.  This activity is fraudulent!

Do not ever give out your Debit Card number, PINs or passwords!  MCCU or our Fraud Monitoring vendor may call to validate a transaction, but will never ask you to provide us your PINs, passwords or other sensitive account information as a form of verification.

If you receive a phone call such as this, please report it to us immediately at 818-993-6328!

8 Steps To An Energy-Smart Home

8 Steps to an energy-smart home. View text next to graphic.

Cut your energy costs this summer by making your home smarter!

#1: Go LED

If you haven’t already done so, switch to LED light bulbs only. Switching just five bulbs can save you $65 a year in energy costs. 

#2: Plant Some Trees 

If your house has lots of west-facing windows, you’re getting loads of sunlight each afternoon. And that’s forcing your AC to work harder. Plant trees and shrubs in front of these windows to lower your energy consumption. 

#3: Rethink Your Roof 

Dark-colored roofs absorb heat and work your AC unit harder. Consider adding an approved coating to your roof that will deflect heat. It’ll reduce your roof’s temperature by up to 60 degrees and trim your AC use by 20%. 

#4: Keep Your Cool 

Run large appliances, like your washing machine and dishwasher, at night. This way, they won’t warm your home in the daytime heat. 

#5: Fix Leaky Windows and Doors 

Sealing leaks can cut your energy costs by as much as 30%. Check external doors and windows for leaks. Reseal all leaking windows by weather stripping the problem areas and consider replacing your door sweep. 

#6: Get Smart! 

Install a smart thermostat. Your home will be programmed to cool off at exactly the times you need. 

#7: Pull Out The Plug 

Cut vampire energy costs by pulling the plug on unused appliances and electronics. 

#8: Go Cold 

90% of the energy used when doing laundry comes from heating the water. When possible, choose the cold setting on your washing machine to reduce your energy consumption.
