AG Koster issues warning after leak of information from credit union

A warning to members of Missouri Credit Union: Attorney General Chris Koster says there was an accidental release of personal information earlier this summer.

Koster is encouraging members of the credit union to monitor their accounts. Missouri Credit Union officials alerted Koster that the information was only available for a short time and they quickly fixed the problem. The credit union has 39,000 members. Koster also listed several warning signs that your identity may have been stolen.

They included receiving unexplained mail, receiving several phone calls for another person, and being denied credit. 

Addition signs that you may be the victim of identity theft include:

- Receiving unexplained mail; 

- Having mail rerouted or stopped; 

- Receiving multiple phone calls for another person; 

- Being denied credit; 

- Learning of unexplained changes to your credit score; 

- Seeing accounts which are not your own on your credit report; 

- Receiving collection calls for another's accounts; 

- Being told by a service provider, lender or banker that your Social Security number cannot be verified or is already in use in their system;

- Receiving telephone calls from someone who wants to obtain additional information about you; 

- Being told by a vendor or provider that they cannot verify your account or locate your account: 

- Unexpected notices by mail, email, or text that your address or password have been changed; 

- Seeing unexplained charges or withdrawals from accounts; 

- Noticing unusual charges to accounts.
