Equifax, one of the three credit reporting agencies, announced last night that a cyber security incident occurred from mid-May until July 29, 2017. This data breach potentially impacts 143 million U.S. consumers. Unfortunately, the information that is included in the breach includes names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses, and, in some cases, driver's license numbers. Along with this security breach, approximately 209,000 credit card numbers and 182,000 dispute documents with personal identifying information were also accessed.  

Great Wolf Lodge Vacation Winner

Heart of Louisiana Credit Union offered a vacation giveaway promotion from July 3rd through August 11th for those who closed a consumer loan greater than $15,000. If they qualified, they were automatically entered into a drawing for the Great Wolf Lodge package which included $1,000 Great Wolf Lodge gift card as well as a $500 Visa gift card for any added expense. They also received another vacation giveaway bag full of goodies. We conducted a random drawing, and our winner was Mr. Darrell Price! Congratulations, and we hope you have a great time on your Great Wolf Lodge vacation!

CASA School Supply Drive

During the month of July, Heart of Louisiana Credit Union members donated school supplies for the children in the Rapides CASA program. Several items were collected, including folders, notebooks, pencils, crayons, markers, etc. Once collected, we took a trip to CASA and presented the staff with the supplies. It was a fun and simple way to reach out to our community and support an amazing organization!

"...knowing that they have the support of the community means a lot. Thank you for thinking of us."

Final Report Card Drawing

Our young members are scoring BIG with their Honor Roll report cards! All members in grade school had the opportunity during the 2016-2017 school year to enter their report cards for some routine drawings, as well as the grand prize drawings for an Apple iPad Mini and an Apple iPod Touch.

Congratulations to Anna from Calcasieu and Natalie from Pineville! Anna was the grand prize winner of the Apple iPad Mini while Natalie received the second grand prize, an Apple iPod Touch.

The young members below each received a $20 gift card to The Grand Theatre.

Email Scams on the Rise

'Phishing' schemes are on the rise and are ever-changing. Just this week, DocuSign fell victim to a breach where a database of customer email addresses were stolen and sent phishing emails. If and when customers opened the attachments on the spoofed email, malicious software will be downloaded.

Final Report Card Drawings Scheduled

The 2016-2017 school year is almost finished! That means it's time to schedule our final Report Card drawings for the year. 

All grade school members with A or A/B Honor Roll can bring by their final report cards to be entered in the drawings.  The final round of movie gift cards will be randomly selected first. Next, we'll enter all the registrations from throughout the year with all A's Honor Roll to randomly choose our grand prize winner for the Apple iPad Mini. Finally, we'll add in the A/B Honor Roll entries to randomly select the winner of the Apple iPod.
