First Nebraska Credit Union checks are being counterfeited and used in several types of scams. Individuals have been receiving checks that appear to be from Upstream Brewing Companies, with the “First Nebraska Educators CU” name and routing number. Do not attempt to cash these checks; they are fraudulent.
If you receive one of these checks, please contact FNCU at (402) 492-9100. We will instruct you on the next steps to take for proper reporting of the fraudulent scam.
Remember, if someone you don’t know gives you a check and asks for money back, it is a scam!
