How to report identity theft
Greater Alliance FCU will never ask you to confirm your account number, PIN, password or any other personal information via e-mail, text or voice call. If you are concerned that you have received fraudulent e-mail, text or call, disclosed confidential information or have questions about online security, immediately contact our Service Support Department at 201-599-5500.
