Welcome to Eastmill Federal Credit Union
Eastmill Federal Credit Union wants to help our members navigate the Equifax breach. Though this breach was not related in any way to your credit union, our commitment is to helping our members. We’ve compiled a summary for our members, as well as links and resources to help our members learn more, and take action to protect their identity and information.
SCAM ALERT: KEEPING OUR MEMBERS AWARE
Eastmill Federal CU would like to help keep our members informed of any scams we see happening.
Currently, we are experiencing a problem associated with Facebook ADs and Internet ADs. You, as a consumer, can click on any AD and the AD may say, "Free Trial Offer", you just pay shipping & handling of $4.95.
You may decide to take advantage of this "fantastic" deal for a free trial product.
What you are not seeing is the FINE PRINT within the company's Terms & Conditions when accepting this "Free Trial Offer".
The fine print states that if you DO NOT cancel this "free trial offer" within 14 days, the company will begin to charge your account, on a monthly basis, for continued delivery of this product; anywhere between $80.00 to $100.00, per item, per month.
Due to the Terms & Conditions of this transaction, the member is responsible for this action. The credit union has NO chargeback rights to help you get your monies back. The member will be out ALL monies withdrawn from the account.
Please be careful of this type of shopping. If you are truly interested in products you see through Facebook Ads or Internet Ads,
for your own financial safety, please research the validity of the product and their website before ordering.
If the sale is authentic, we believe you should be safest doing business through their website where you should also be looking for readable Terms & Conditions.
Please remember, nothing is for free.
