From the CEO’s Desk

Hello, my name is Matt Jennings and I am the CEO of Quest Federal Credit Union. I would like to take this opportunity to bring our members up to speed with anything that may be happening at Quest. Back to school is a busy season for our members with school clothes shopping, buying supplies and getting the family back on the school clock with earlier bed times, plenty of running to practices and events and of course, homework! Quest has been doing it’s homework, tackling issues like increased online fraud protection, new technology for Debit and Credit cards and enhancing the products that we offer our members at the best price possible, most of the time FREE of charge. If you are a user of our online banking product, you have been receiving emails about an upgrade and enhancement that is coming at the end of August that will help Quest help our members use this amazing tool more safely and create an environment that protects your assets and personal information. Simply stated, you will no longer be able to use your account number as your username. Its ME 24/7 will ask you to change your username to something unique to you; it can be a combination of a name, pets name, hobby, sports team, whatever you may choose. I encourage you to take action on this prior to the end of the month so you do not experience interruptions in your service. AG*Quest, our agricultural suite of loans is growing like a weed, no pun intended, during the dog days of summer! Shannon Allmon is quickly advancing our products and services into a full line of lending products that meets or exceeds the needs of family farms of most all sizes. Quest offers lines of credit, machinery and real estate loans of varying terms. Call or stop in to talk to Shannon and find out what AG*Quest can do to help you “explore the possibilities!” If you haven’t checked out our new ID Protect product, this is a must for all of our members! Regardless if you shop online or not, we all have risk associated with identity theft and it is one of the fastest growing fraud related crimes in the world. Quest offers a simple to use, very inexpensive (free for loan customers) identity theft coverage that offers you credit report monitoring, lost or stolen credit/debit card support and identity recovery insurance if you are a victim of ID theft. I encourage you to check out this service on our website or simply ask one of our knowledgeable Member Service Representatives to explain and sign you up. It is insurance that is worthwhile and could be a game changer if you fall victim to this ever expanding crime. So as you put the kids back on the bus and start back into the swing of school, be safe, watch out for kids walking and riding bikes and enjoy this late summer transition to fall. I welcome any comments, suggestions or questions from our members. I can be reached by calling the Main Office or via email at mjennings@questfcu.com. Thank you for your loyal patronage to Quest and I challenge you to Explore the Possibilities! Matt Jennings Chief Executive Officer

ATM Deposit Security Tips

Quest Federal Credit Union would like to remind members and account holders about Empty Envelope fraud. Empty-envelope fraud is an attempt to perform ATM deposits using envelopes that are either completely empty or hold deposits of cash or checks for amounts that are less than what they have keyed in at the ATM. Individuals will attempt to have the account holder make the deposit and then immediately ask for withdrawal of the monies deposited, usually with a promise to pay the account holder a small amount for the help. This act is fraudulent behavior and is punishable by law. Therefore, it is important to remember these helpful security measures that everyone can take to ensure that you are not a victim of fraud.
  • Do not accept and/or deposit envelopes prepared by anyone other than yourself.
  • Do not accept deposit envelopes prepared by others regardless of the content as any check contained therein could also be fraudulently written.
  • If there are parked cars or suspicious individuals hanging around the ATM, regardless of time-of-day, we recommend that you drive away and contact the credit union or local law enforcement.
Thank you for taking the time to learn about ATM Deposit Security. Should you have any questions or would like to speak to someone, please contact Quest Federal Credit Union at 800-333-9571 or 419-674-4998.
