Northern Credit Union to host free, virtual fraud education series

WATERTOWN, NY – Northern Credit Union is excited to offer the community a free Fraud Education Series on Facebook Live. The three-part series is designed to help people recognize the signs of fraud and protect themselves and loved ones from scammers.

Each topic will be presented in a Facebook Live format on the Northern Credit Union Facebook page, and participants will have the opportunity to ask fraud management experts questions in real-time.

The presentations will be recorded for those who cannot participate live to watch afterward on

“Fraud can happen to anyone, which is why we want to make sure everyone has the resources to protect themselves against it,” said Dylan Stocking, Fraud Analyst. “We hope our members and the community find these upcoming sessions informative and welcome suggestions for future presentations.”
