Be alert for Coronavirus stimulus check scams
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) was approved on Friday, March 27th. Eligible American taxpayers will receive checks in the amountof $1,200.00 via mail or direct deposit from the Treasury Department through the IRS.
The IRS has stated that taxpayers will receive their one-time direct deposit payments within three weeks. However, the IRS and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) are warning that stimulus check scams and frauds are on the rise.
- Taxpayers do not need to sign up for anything to receive their stimulus check.
- The IRS does not make phone calls, contact the public via social media, or send texts and emails to confirm personal details.
As a Century Federal Credit Union member, if you or your family should receive an email, phone call or text message claiming to be from either the IRS or the Treasury Department stating they will process your Coronavirus stimulus check claim, but need some personal financial information from you first, or say that you need to pay a fee of any kind, including the purchase of gift cards, ignore the email/text message or hang up on the phone call immediately!
- The direct deposit or mailing of the stimulus check is automatic, meaning you do not have to do anything, provide any financial information or pay a fee in advance.
- The IRS is referring to the 2019 taxpayer returns for the information on where to make the direct deposit or mail the stimulus check. The IRS already has all of the information it needs.
- If you have not updated your direct deposit information on your last filed return, you may receive your stimulus check by U.S. Mail.
- If your stimulus check is coming by mail, please allow for a delay.
- If the IRS does need to get in touch with you, it will send a letter through the U.S. Mail
- In a few weeks, the IRS will be launching a dedicated online portal for stimulus checks. However, since the portal is not available yet, take caution and do not give out your personal and credit union account information to anyone.
Be aware of Coronavirus scams
Throughout these unprecedented times, please be aware that there will be criminals looking for ways to take advantage of our members, by offering you coronavirus “cures” or asking for your personal and confidential financial information.
- Fraudsters are pretending to be from reputable institutions such as the Center for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO), and even Century Federal, attempting to steal your personal and financial data
- Be suspicious of any email you receive claiming to have a cure or vaccine for Covid-19. Do NOT click on any link in any such email
- Be careful of any unsolicited emails or phone calls you may receive

A Message from our CEO & President
Dear Valued Member,
As the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) begins to have an increased impact on our communities, we feel it's important to connect directly with you to share more about the steps we're taking across our business and branch locations to help keep you, our members, and our communities safe and healthy.
Our hearts go out to all those who have been affected. The health and safety of our members and employees has always been our top priority, and we will continue to monitor this rapidly evolving situation. Our branches are cleaned regularly as part of our normal course of business. Going forward, we will increase the frequency and extent of those cleanings, in addition to adding resources like hand sanitizer in our branch and office locations for both members and employees.
We have posted copies of the Ohio Department of Health Coronavirus Prevention chart in all branch locations, and continue to provide updated information company-wide to ensure that all Century Federal employees have what they need to stay healthy, and have been directed to stay home if they aren't feeling well. All of these practices and our business decisions are made with guidance from the CDC, WHO, and Ohio Department of Health, with additional direction from local, U.S. government and public health agencies. As a precaution, we encourage our members to please exercise good hygiene habits when utilizing any ATM or handling money.
Based on the information we have assembled from various health agencies, our own preparedness, and the current state of our operations, we are confident at this time that our branch locations will continue to conduct business in a safe and preventative manner.
Furthermore, after thoughtful consideration, we have made the decision to cancel this year’s in-person Annual Meeting, previously scheduled for March 26 at Acacia in Beachwood. We are, however, planning to hold a LIVE virtual meeting in its place where our members will be able to interact directly with myself, and a few of our board members from the comfort and safety of your home.
We understand that part of the excitement surrounding our Annual Meeting is the valuable giveaways that we provide to our valued members, and please know that these will still be available to members who choose to attend the virtual meeting. We will have more details on this, and how to access the live meeting in the days to come. Please stay tuned for more information!
To close, our hope is to make it easy for our members to conduct business with Century Federal Credit Union. As always, our Member Services Center is ready to assist with any questions or concerns that you may have. We also suggest that you conduct many of your daily banking transactions, such as checking your account balances, remotely deposit checks and authorize account transfers – all by utilizing Online Banking on your desktop computer or with the mobile banking app on your smartphone or tablet. You can also obtain additional information, such as ways to protect yourself from the virus, and limiting your exposure. Click here for helpful tips from the Ohio Department of Health.
