VITA -- Free Tax Preparation
It’s that time of the year again, when minds begin to drift toward the more exciting things in life, the things that we only get to enjoy once a year… like tax preparation! North Coast Opportunity’s Volunteer Network and United Way of Wine Country manage the Volunteer Income Tax Assistant (VITA) Program, also known as “Earn It! Keep It! Save It!” VITA provides free, quality tax return preparation to individuals, families and seniors who earn $60,000 or less. 

CFCU is excited to once again host VITA at our following locations:

Clearlake : Mar. 28

Fort Bragg : Feb. 8 + 15 + 22, Mar. 7 + 14, Apr. 4

Spanish Website Coming This Month 
Sitio Web en Español Llega a Finales de Este Mes
We are excited to announce the upcoming launch of our Spanish language website! 

In an effort to better serve our LOCAL Hispanic community, we deem it important to provide the option to bank in the language many of our Members prefer. 

A parallel Spanish-language version of our English-language website will be live by the time you receive next month’s newsletter.  
¡Nos complace anunciar el lanzamiento de nuestro sitio web en español!
 
En un esfuerzo para servir mejor a nuestra comunidad hispana, creemos que es importante ofrecer operaciones bancarias en el idioma que es preferido por muchos Miembros.
 
Antes de que reciba el boletín del próximo mes, habrá una versión en español similar a nuestro sitio web de ingles. 
Think Before You Click – FedEx + Amazon Fake Text Messages  
There’s a new scam to watch out for. A text message scam disguising itself as a delivery notification from FedEx and/or Amazon – two highly popular companies. 

In the text, scammers include a link that takes you to a fake Amazon survey page. In exchange for completing the survey, you will receive an array of gifts, all you need to do is pay for the shipping. This is a scam. 

Once credit card information is entered, they automatically sign you up for a trial to a third-party company, costing you almost $100 a month. 

A way to avoid falling for this scam is to carefully look at the link. Does the link actually include the name of the company you’re expecting a package from? If no, it’s very likely this is scam text. 

When in doubt, always check the status of your orders on the company’s website. 

And remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
