CFCU offers credit report, fraud detection class

Chetco Federal Credit Union (CFCU) will offer a class “Understanding Your Credit Report and Fraud Detection,” free to the public, at 3 p.m. Wednesday, April 25, in the Community Room at the Southern Oregon Community College campus, 96082 Lone Ranch Parkway. 

The class will shed light on the details of credit reporting and educate guests on today’s most common types of fraud.

 

Susan Lunsford, CFCU’s Certified Credit Union financial counselor (CCUFC), will be presenting this information with Michele Later, CFCU’s Visa specialist.  

Throughout her 12-plus years at CFCU, Lunsford has worked with members on everything from loan modifications, to budgets and financial education.

 “Helping people advance themselves to the next financial step is my goal,” Lunsford said.

Michele Later has been CFCU’s Visa specialist for seven years. She has more than nine years experience in electronic banking, dealing with debit/credit cards, merchant machines and card fraud. Later will provide an overview of fraud activity in today’s world.

“What you don’t know, can hurt you,” Later said. She is looking forward to providing helpful information on ATM skimming and contactless cards to better protect finances.

Reservations are needed, as seating is limited. To register for the class, contact Lauren, 541-469-7700, ext. 1056, or stop by any CFCU branch.

  • Focus turns to U.S. data as China slowdown looms
    After a dizzying two weeks that saw a rapid plunge and rebound in equity prices, investors are looking forward to a week of economic data that may provide clarity on the likelihood of a near-term U.S. interest rate hike and help tamp down the market's recent wild swings. The economic figures will culminate in Friday?s jobs report that should reveal more about the strength of the U.S. economy. Car sales, construction spending, the Federal Reserve's "beige book" and jobs growth may show the economy is strong enough to withstand the first rate hike in nearly a decade from the Federal Reserve, despite worries about a hard landing for China?s economy.
  • Fed says rate hike next month hinges on market volatility
    The Federal Reserve on Friday left the door open to a September interest rate hike even while several U.S. central bank officials acknowledged that turmoil in financial markets, if prolonged, could delay the first policy tightening in nearly a decade. Some top policymakers, including Fed Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer, said recent volatility in global markets could quickly ease and possibly pave the way for the U.S. rate hike, for which investors, governments and central banks around the world are bracing. With a key policy meeting set for Sept. 16-17, at least five Fed officials spoke publicly in what amounted to a jockeying for position on whether increasing the Fed's benchmark overnight lending rate was too risky amid an economic slowdown in China, a rising U.S. dollar (.DXY) and falling commodity prices (XAU=) (CMCU3).
  • Unions set sights on e-commerce and manufacturing firms after NLRB ruling
    On Thursday the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) ruled the owner of a California recycling plant was a "joint employer" with the contractor that hired workers at the plant, essentially forcing both to bargain with the union together or risk violating U.S. labor law. Business groups, arguing that the ruling could lead to higher costs and hurt the economy, are pushing the Republican-led Congress to overturn it, in part it because the company named in the decision - Browning-Ferris - cannot challenge it in a federal court without overcoming a number of procedural hurdles. Unions see the decision as a breakthrough not just in efforts to help employees organizes at franchisees of McDonald's Corp (MCD.N) and other chains but also as a tool to counter the proliferation of subcontracting in other industries in which workers are one or two steps removed from the companies indirectly controlling them.
