Regulation E: Electronic Fund Transfers
Regulation E is a consumer protection law designed to protect consumer accounts established primarily for personal, family or household purposes making electronic fund transfers. Excluded from coverage are non-consumer accounts, such as Trust, Corporations, Partnership, etc. The term “electronic fund transfer” (EFT) generally refers to a transaction initiated through an electronic terminal, telephone, computer, or magnetic tape that instructs, or authorizes a financial institution either to credit or debit a consumer’s asset account. An example of EFT offered within Home Banking is Electronic Bill pay.
Regulation E gives consumers a way to notify their financial institution that an EFT has been made on their account without their permission. If you believe an unauthorized EFT has been made on your account, contact us immediately at (601) 351-9200 or toll free 1-800-643-1567.
Consumer Safe Computing Tips:
Non-Consumer Members are not protected by Regulation E.
A non-consumer member using online banking and/or bill pay is not protected under Regulation E. Because the member is not protected by Regulation E, precautions should be made by the member to evaluate and review the controls in place to ensure that they are compliant with the risk level that the member is willing to accept. The member should also perform a risk assessment and evaluate the controls they have in place periodically. The risk assessment should be used to determine the risk level associated with any internet activities the non-consumer member performs and any controls in place to mitigate these risks.
Notify us at once if you believe your password has been lost or stolen, or an unauthorized person has obtained access to your accounts without your permission. Telephoning is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. Telephone number: 601-351-9200 or Toll free: 1-800-643-1567.
If you believe someone has used your password or accessed your accounts through home banking without your authorization, please contact us immediately by calling 601-351-9200 or toll free: 1-800-643-1567.

Phishing is when Internet fraudsters impersonate a business to trick you into giving them your personal information, such as usernames, passwords and credit card details. Legitimate businesses don’t ask you to send sensitive information through insecure channels.
For example, a fraudulent e-mail may state that NCUA will add money to the member’s account for taking part in a survey. The link embedded in the message directs members to a counterfeit version of NCUA’s website with an illicit survey that solicits credit card account numbers and confidential personal information. MSFCU will never ask credit union members or the general public for personal account or personally identifiable information as part of a survey.
Phishing via SMS, or SMishing, uses cell phone text messages or SMS (Short Message Service) to trick you into providing personal and financial information. Smishers may use URLs or an automated voice response system to try and collect your information.
Tip: In some instances, criminals have used malicious software in their text messages solicitations. To prevent further security issues, completely remove unsolicited text messages from your phone. This may take two steps: deleting the text and then completely removing it from your device.
Phishing by voice, or vishing, exploits a general trust in landline telephone services. The victim is often unaware that voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) allows for caller ID spoofing, thus providing anonymity for the criminal caller. Rather than providing any information to the caller, the consumer should verify the call by contacting the financial institution or credit card company directly, being sure to use the institution’s accurate contact information (i.e., do not use contact information the caller provides).
The practice of spying while someone is using an ATM, POS, etc. to obtain personal access information.

An electronic method of capturing a victim’s personal information used by identity thieves. The skimmer is a small device that scans a credit card and stores the information contained in the magnetic strip. Skimmers have a small cameras attached which takes a picture of your pin. (See video)
Once identity thieves have your personal information, they can drain your bank account, run up charges on your credit cards, open new utility accounts, or get medical treatment on your health insurance. An identity thief can file a tax refund in your name and get your refund. In some extreme cases, a thief might even give your name to the police during an arrest.
