The newsworthy stuff.

From our quarterly newsletter and #CommunityMatters efforts to our Community Event room, these are the moments, happenings and newsworthy mentions.

#CommunityMatters

Since their inception, credit unions worldwide have shared a common philosophy of “People Helping People.”

In 2019, we revisited this essential value and initiated a new program, #CommunityMatters, with the aim of creating a significant and lasting impact on the communities we serve.

 

One Vision proudly gives back to our hometown community!
“People helping People” is a guiding principle of the credit union philosophy.
February, 2023, One Vision Credit Union had the privilege to live out that mission in a big way as we donated close to $20,000.00 to several local non-profit organizations‼
The following non-profit organizations were chosen as this year’s recipients: ChildPlace -$6,000; St. Elizabeths Catholic Charities – $5,000; Habitat for Humanity Clark & Floyd Indiana – $4,000; Hope Southern Indiana – $2,520; and Pure Initiatives – $1000.00.
Congratulations to all! 
We are grateful to be your community partner. We hope our contributions will help you continue to make a difference in the lives of those in our community. 

 


We continue to live our #communitymatters initiative. On April 27, we donated and installed our 3rd Blessing Box at the Jeffersonville Township Public Library location on East Court Avenue in Jeffersonville, Indiana.

The Blessing Boxes serve as emergency food micro-pantries to help those struggling to make ends meet.

We want to thank Jeffersonville Township Public Library, for allowing us to partner with them in providing for those in need in our community.

Blessing Box

In 2019, we launched our first Blessing Box at our Lewis & Clark Parkway location in Clarksville, Indiana. This small pantry is stocked with non-perishable food items and is intended to aid the underprivileged in our society. With many individuals in our community struggling to make ends meet, emergency food accessibility is in high demand. Therefore, we have extended our support by donating multiple Blessing Boxes to non-profit organizations throughout Clark and Floyd counties. We hope our contributions will help to address the issue of food scarcity in our communities.

To celebrate. To commemorate. To honor. Our offices are closed on these holidays.

Time, Talent, Treasure. One Vision Credit Union #communitymatters

When we say #communitymatters, we mean it! ‍‍‍❤

One Vision Credit Union staff participated in Habitat For Humanity Clark & Floyd Indiana’s Walls Up Blitz Day on May 10th. Because of the dedication of local volunteers, two incredible families will be able to fulfill their dream home ownership.

Community focus and volunteerism are integral to the credit union philosophy of “People Helping People.” It’s something we are passionate about.

As your only #hometowncreditunion, we are proud to say we have been helping build COMMUNITY in Southern Indiana since 1954.

HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF AGAINST FRAUDULENT TEXT (SMISHING)

In an era where technology connects us more than ever, it’s crucial to protect your personal information. One way that fraudsters use to gain your personal information is through deceptive text messages. These fraudulent texts, often known as “smishing” (SMS phishing), can seriously threaten your financial well-being if not handled with caution.

Here’s what you need to know to protect yourself.

5 Signs Your Text Message Could Be Fake:

  • Misspelled words.
  • Letters that should not be capitalized.
  • Incorrect grammar.
  • Asking for personal information.
  • A link that doesn’t look right.

7 Steps to Avoid Becoming a Smishing Victim:

  • Don’t click on links in text messages from unknown senders. Even messages from people you know could be malicious.
  • Never give out private or financial information.
  • Verify requests from banks or businesses by contacting them directly.
  • Watch for messages with non-mobile numbers. Scammers use email-to-text services to hide their identities.
  • Don’t make quick decisions under pressure. Criminals use this tactic to manipulate you.
  • Verify the source and do your research before responding to suspicious texts.
  • If you receive a text saying we want to cancel your credit card, use the number on the back of your card to call. Don’t call unknown numbers given to you by texters.

Remember One Vision Credit Union will not call, text, or email our members asking for personal information, account information, or passcodes.  You should always be skeptical of anyone asking for such information.  If the text message provides for you to respond to stop future texts, don’t do it. Sending such a message to a scammer merely alerts them that yours is an active phone number.

Of course, phone scams aren’t just limited to texting. Fraudsters may also call you impersonating your financial institution or other trusted source. Always be wary of incoming calls asking for personal information or passcodes.

What to Do if You Become a Victim of Smishing or a Fraudulent Phone Call

It may be hard to decipher a smishing attack, but if you fall victim, you should have a plan in place to help rectify the situation immediately.

  • Report the suspected attack to your financial institution.
  • Freeze credit cards to prevent fraudulent purchases.
  • Change all passwords and account PINs where possible.
  • Scan your mobile device for viruses using an anti-malware app.
  • Monitor finances, credit, and various online accounts for unfamiliar activity.

Stay vigilant and informed to protect your personal information. Your proactive measures are crucial in maintaining a secure financial environment.
