Scam Alert! Keep Yourself Informed and Protected Expand/Collapse

You may have heard about this one on the news. It's called the "Phone Port Scam" or the "SIM Card Swap Scam". Fraudsters are using SIM swapping and phone number porting to gain access to your email, social media and financial accounts. From there, they gain direct access to your personal information, calendar, contacts, money and then some. Fraudsters may empty your bank accounts, apply for credit in your good name, or impersonate you to defraud your entire contact list. In the meantime, you lose access to your mobile service, are typically locked out of all your accounts, and are left scrambling.

Unfortunately, it's making its way around Saskatchewan; but here are some ways you can protect yourself:

  • Contact your phone provider and ask about additional security measures that may be available
  • If you lose mobile service on your device, contact your service provider immediately
  • Sign up for ALERTS. ALERTS can be set up to notifty you when changes are made, or someone logs into your account. Come in and see us in branch and we can help you get set up. Find out more about ALERTS by clicking here!

Better Together: Cornerstone, Horizon and Plainsview Credit Unions Explore Partnership Expand/Collapse

SASKATCHEWAN, December 13, 2019 – Cornerstone, Horizon and Plainsview Credit Unions are actively exploring an opportunity to partner together as a single credit union to drive benefits for members, employees and communities.  

The three partner credit unions have engaged in discussions regarding the design and potential to form a new credit union.  The shared future vision of the three credit union partners is a new credit union that is operationally competitive and differentiated through its commitment to member wellbeing via trusted advice and service as well as concern for community.   A new credit union will be more sustainable and better able to leverage opportunities and manage risks in the ever-changing financial services marketplace.  

The next step of the partnership is a due diligence process of building the formal business case for the combined credit union.  Once the business case is finalized, it will be reviewed for approval by the Board of Directors of each of the three credit unions.  Once the business case is approved by the partner Boards, each credit union will begin a formal consultation process with their members, so they have the opportunity to learn more about the proposed new credit union.
