Free Shred Day - December 10, 2019
The Shredding Services of Texas truck was onsite at 3849 Antilley on Tuesday, December 10 to shred outdated financial paperwork. We're pleased that so many members were able to participate. Shredding Services had to bring a second truck to hold the nearly 11,000 pounds (5.5 tons!) of documents.
The next shred day is planned for the spring, shortly after Tax Day on April 15.
July 2018 - NO Data Breach at Abilene Teachers FCU
Over the weekend of July 27-29, several ATFCU members filed police reports detailing unauthorized withdrawals from their accounts. News stories on Monday, July 30 erroneously stated that Abilene Teachers FCU had a data breach. This is not the case. Furthermore, contrary to news reports, the scheme was not limited to Abilene Teachers FCU members.
As details emerged, the most likely explanation is that a card skimming operation was running in Abilene during the time period in question. The Abilene Police Department continues to actively investigate.
If you used your ATFCU debit or credit card for any purpose (including checking your account balance) at an Abilene convenience store during the last weekend of July please monitor your account carefully. Should you see an unauthorized withdrawal, contact our Plastic Cards department at 677-2274 or 800-677-6770.
Don't worry! Members are not responsible for fraudulent transactions made on their accounts. Please notify us promptly of any suspicious activity.
October 2017 - Body Armor for Barco
Barco, the newest K-9 officer in the Abilene Police Department, was introduced to the public on July 24 at the Antilley Road branch. He was purchased with funds donated by Abilene Teachers FCU after the APD unexpectedly lost two dogs in February.
During the introduction APD Chief Stan Standridge explained that K-9 officers require custom made body armor to protect them in possible gunfire situations. While the department has canine armor for German Shepherds, the latest three canine additions are Belgian Malinois, a slightly smaller breed less prone to hip dysplasia. Each set of armor costs about $750.
Credit union employees decided that we needed to protect Barco. In exchange for weekly donations during October, each donor was allowed to dress casually throughout the month. Huge success! A recent donation of $2,290 will buy armor for Barco and two of his closest friends.
