November 4, 2021 | Protect Yourself and Your Data

Girl in Yellow Sweater on ComputerSun East is committed to protecting our members from fraud and scam events. Follow these tips below to protect your accounts and information, and for more security tips, visit https://www.cisa.gov/stopransomware.

Be Aware of Scams

Don’t Fall for a Fake

Imposters can come in all different shapes and sizes and may appear as your financial institution, phone company, family member, or even a government agency.

Don’t Let Them Pressure You

Fraudsters use pressure tactics to create a false sense of urgency. They may tell you they will disconnect your electricity, that your benefits will be discontinued, or that you have credited money to your phone account.

Don’t Reveal Sensitive Personal Information

Sun East will never call you and then ask you for your one-time verification code, PIN, password, or other personal identification details. If something feels strange,  hang up immediately.

Go to the Source

Confirm who you are dealing with by calling the number on the back of your card or use a trusted number on the company website. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Also beware of
anyone promising you high returns, low risk, and “golden” opportunities.

Avoid Grandparent Scams

If someone claims to be a family member, verify with that family member by calling them directly. If you think your grandchild needs help, get in touch with them directly, not by email, social media, or
text. Always call their parents before sending money unintentionally to a potential scammer.

Traditional Passwords Aren’t Secure Enough

Use the strongest authentication options provided everywhere they are offered, especially with banks, phone, and email providers. If you are on a shared or public device, you should not save passwords
or login details.

Never Share Your Passwords or PIN

Keep your passwords and PINs a secret, even from close friends, family, and teammates. It is never a good idea to share your login information.

Be Alert

Never send money to someone you don’t know in real life, especially using gift cards or a third-party payment app like Zelle®, Cash App, PayPal, Venmo, etc.

Think Twice Before Clicking on a Link

Remember to only click on familiar links to access business sites online, and confirm requests before automatically downloading apps to fix site issues.

Report Suspicious Activity

Sun East emails include a Security Zone box in the footer with a personalized stamp, your name, and the last four digits of your primary phone number. Monitor your accounts regularly, respond to fraud alerts and report unauthorized transactions promptly. Call our contact center at 610-485-2960 to report any suspicious emails, calls, texts, etc.

Don’t forget, if you’d like more information on Cybersecurity, visit https://www.cisa.gov/stopransomware.

November 1, 2021 | Check Fraud & Mail Theft Alert

Please Be Aware of Check Fraud and Mail Theft in Your Area

The Aston, PA Police Department recently announced that there is increased fraudulent activity regarding mail theft and check fraud. As a valued part of our Member family, we want to make sure you are aware of this, and here are a few easy steps you can take to protect yourself and your savings:

  • Consider using Sun East Bill Pay or Loan Pay services available to you within the Mobile App, your online banking portal, or Automated-Bank-by-Phone at (610) 485-6800.
  • When including physical checks in any mailed pieces, go to the post office and physically mail your envelope INSIDE the post office location, rather than using the blue mailboxes in public areas.
  • Confirm that any recent checks mailed, and cashed, were received by the intended recipients.

If you suspect your account with Sun East has been breached as a result of the recent mail theft, please contact member services at memberservice@suneast.org or call (610) 485-2960.

Let’s all be vigilant together!


October 14, 2021 | Your Action is Needed: Tell Congress to Oppose New IRS Reporting Provisions

email header

Your action is needed to tell congress to oppose new IRS reporting provisions.

What You Need To Know:

IRS Reporting to be Included in Budget Reconciliation Bill

Recently, Speaker Nancy Pelosi stated IRS reporting requirements for credit union and bank accounts will stay in the reconciliation bill despite public concerns. The proposal will require financial institutions, including credit unions, to report information on any account with $600 of total activity over the course of a year. The proposal will give the IRS the inflows and outflows of basically every credit union and bank account in the United States.

Speaker indicated the dollar amount of reporting requirement may change, however.

What This Means To You:

This proposal would violate consumers’ personal privacy by forcing credit unions and banks to provide the government with information that does not reflect taxable activity.

Time is running out to prevent this action from being adopted. To oppose this reporting provision, and protect your privacy, please go to the Credit Union National Association Grassroots Action Center and select “Tell Congress to Oppose New IRS Reporting Provisions” and follow the prompts.

Be heard

Thank you for being a valued Sun East Member.


October 1, 2021 | Changes to USPS First-Class Mail Delivery

Beginning October 1, 2021, the United States Postal Service (USPS) will be extending its standard delivery time for first-class mail traveling longer distances. First-class mail traveling within a local area will continue to be delivered within 2 days but mail traveling longer distances may take up to 5 days to arrive. Please allow yourself time when making payments.

Take advantage of our online and mobile services:

July 12, 2021 | Advanced Child Tax Credit Payments

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will start sending Child Tax Credit Payments to eligible individuals. The IRS will pay half the total credit amount in advance monthly payments beginning July 15. You will claim the other half when you file your 2021 income tax return. These changes apply to tax year 2021 only.

If you are eligible to receive advance Child Tax Credit payments based on your 2020 tax return or 2019 tax return, you generally will receive those payments automatically without needing to take any additional action. You must take action if you have not filed your 2020 tax return or 2019 tax return. Taxpayers can visit IRS.gov/filing for details

Sun East FCU does not have any information regarding missing payments. It is our responsibility to process the payments provided to us by the IRS, which are being sent in batches over the coming weeks. Not all members will receive their funds at the same time. If you are expecting payment and have not received a deposit, we encourage you to visit IRS.gov for more information.

As a reminder, please be aware of scams regarding Economic Impact Payments. If you receive a call, email, or text message saying the IRS needs money or personal information (social security number, account number, debit/credit card number, etc.) before sending your payment, do not respond.

Below are answers to some commonly asked questions:
