St Marys Credit Union Data Breach

What Happened?

On March 29, 2024, St. Mary's Credit Union members received a concerning notification. Mastercard reported a security incident potentially involving unauthorized access to member funds through ATM/debit cards. St. Mary's Credit Union, a community-centric financial institution, immediately took action to safeguard its members' financial security.

The breach specifically exposed ATM/debit card information, placing members' funds at risk. In response, St. Mary's Credit Union has implemented several protective measures. These include reducing daily withdrawal and purchase limits on affected debit cards to $210 for ATM withdrawals and $500 for POS purchases, respectively. Furthermore, the credit union is issuing new cards to the affected members and has set a deadline to deactivate the current cards by March 29, 2024.

Members are urged to remain vigilant and monitor their account activities for any signs of unauthorized transactions. In the event of suspicious activity, members should immediately inform St. Mary's Credit Union. The institution has also provided guidance on good practices to follow if members suspect their identity has been compromised, such as obtaining police reports and contacting credit-reporting agencies.

For more detailed information, affected members can refer to the full notice on the Massachusetts Attorney General's website.
