youth month

Each year in April, credit unions nationwide celebrate Youth Month. VLFCU is no exception and is excited to announce that we have revamped the celebration this year! We hope to engage more with our younger members and to educate them and their parents about the products and services specifically designed to help the youth in our community. 

As part of our celebration, each branch will host contests and have giveaways throughout the month. We encourage you to bring your kids to a VLFCU branch for a visit!

tax fraud schemes

There’s not much more to say about tax scammers than has already been published, but taxpayers need to be wary of thieves who want your identity and your money. If it sounds too good to be true, then it’s most likely a scam. At the top of the IRS’s list of scams targeting taxpayers this year are:

  • erroneous refunds
  • phone calls from the IRS or debt collectors
  • phishing and malware schemes (a means of obtaining your personal information by posing as a trustworthy entity)
  • bogus emails
  • scams which actually target legitimate tax preparers
