TCP Credit Union is aware of the Equifax cybersecurity incident which may have potentially impacted approximately 143 million U.S. consumers. TCPCU reports credit related information on loans to credit bureaus, including Equifax, as explained in TCPCU’s Rules and Regulations and Privacy Notice. Equifax advises there is no evidence of unauthorized activity on Equifax’s core consumer or commercial credit reporting databases, which is where TCPCU reports members’ credit data information. Please be assured that your information at TCPCU has not been compromised. This incident occurred solely at Equifax.
Equifax has established a dedicated website, www.equifaxsecurity2017.com, to help consumers determine if their information has been potentially impacted and to enable them to sign up for credit file monitoring and identity theft protection. The offering, called TrustedID Premier, includes 3-Bureau credit monitoring of Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion credit reports, copies of Equifax credit reports, ability to lock and unlock Equifax credit reports, identity theft insurance, and Internet scanning for Social Security numbers. These services are being provided free to U.S. consumers by Equifax for one year. Consumers interested in the TrustedID Premier services must sign up for the service at the website indicated above.
The website provides additional information on steps consumers can take to protect their personal information. Equifax recommends that consumers with additional questions visit www.equifaxsecurity2017.com or call Equifax’s dedicated contact center at 866-447-7559, which the company set up to assist consumers about this issue. The call center is open every day (including weekends) from 7:00 a.m.-1:00 a.m. eastern standard time.
In addition to the website, Equifax will send direct mail notices to consumers whose card numbers or dispute documents with personal identifying information were impacted. Equifax is also in the process of contacting U.S. state and federal regulators and has sent written notifications to all U.S. state attorneys general, which includes Equifax contact information for regulator inquiries.
Although your information at TCPCU has not been compromised, TCPCU will be working closely with Equifax, and we will share additional information as we receive it.

Regulation E: Electronic Fund Transfers
Regulation E is a consumer protection law designed to protect consumer accounts established primarily for personal, family or household purposes making electronic fund transfers. Excluded from coverage are non-consumer accounts, such as Trust, Corporations, and Partnerships. The term “electronic fund transfer’ (EFT) generally refers to a transaction initiated through an electronic terminal, telephone, computer, or magnetic tape that instructs, or authorizes a financial institution either to credit or debit a consumer’s asset account.
Regulation E gives consumers a way to notify their financial institution that an EFT has been made on their account without their permission. If you believe an unauthorized EFT has been made on your account, contact us immediately.
