COVID-19 RELATED SCAMS
Pandemic related scams are on the rise
From malware-laden emails to fake donations, to scammers looking to take advantage of people waiting for stimulus checks, you need to be aware of scammers taking advantage during the current public health crisis. There has also been a surge in criminal activity on mobile channels - from misinformation spread through chat groups, to malicious fake coronavirus tracking apps that can take control of your phone, and phony government relief scam texts.
Just remember, be cautious
- Never click on links from texts or emails you weren’t expecting.
- Be wary of anything that triggers your emotions, good or bad.
- Avoid clicking on links in WhatsApp or other channels.
- Only trust reputable sources and if in doubt, verify.

*APR = Annual Percentage Rate. 0.00% APR is for a 60-day loan term with no periodic payments, and one “balloon payment” payment equal to the original balance of the loan on the 60th day. Payment example for a 60-day 0.00% APR term loan is one payment of $1,000 per $1,000 borrowed. No pre-payment penalty. If the loan is not paid in full by the 60th day, the borrower may request that the balance be applied to a personal term loan with no additional credit application. Please see mitfcu.org/rates for available rates and terms. Offer is valid from 3/20/2020 and may be terminated at any time without prior notification.
**APR = Annual Percentage Rate. Payment example for a $5,000 loan with an APR of 3.50% is 36 monthly payments of $146.51. No prepayment penalty. Only one outstanding Employee Assistance Loan is available per membership. This offer is available for a limited time and may be discontinued at any time without notice.
***This is a temporary program to ease hardship and allow members a more stable cash flow during these trying times.
This is not a forgiveness of any principal or interest owed on the loan; interest will still accrue during forbearance,
principal and interest payments will still eventually be due, and the term of the loan will be extended – possibly greater than the
term of skipped payments due to the amortization of interest. This hardship extension can be applied for up to six (6) payments per loan with the Credit Union.
