Be Aware! There is a new credit and debit card scam going around…

This current scam involves debit cards, credit cards and pre-paid cards. PLEASE BE AWARE! The electronic voice calls a cell number and tells you that your card has been cancelled and to reactivate your card press 1. When you select the option to reinstate your card, the next automated voice tells you to, “Now enter your card number” and at that point the criminals behind this scam have your card information. Please understand that the scammers have obtained cell numbers only from some source that sells cell numbers and are now trying to gain access to your card number.

Please remember, here at Chocolate Bayou we will never ask for your card information – because we already have that information!

As always, give us a call at (281) 331-2253 should you have questions.

Proud To Partner With AISD!

The Alvin ISD School Board presented Chocolate Bayou Credit Union with a Certificate of Commendation recently, in honor of our various partnerships with the school district.

Most recently Chocolate Bayou was a major sponsor helping to bring Rachel’s Challenge to Alvin and Manvel High Schools. Rachel’s Challenge is a series of empowering programs and strategies that equip students and adults to combat bullying and feelings of isolation and despair by creating a culture of kindness and compassion. The programs are based on the writings and life of 17-year-old Rachel Scott who was the first student killed at Columbine High School in 1999.

A Rachel’s Challenge community presentation was also held at Manvel High School. Pictured are (left to right) Darrell Alexander, AISD Executive Director of Curriculum and Instruction; Gayleen Supak, Chief Operations Officer at Chocolate Bayou Credit Union; Alex Jackson, Rachel’s Challenge Presenter and Tommy King, AISD Deputy Superintendent for Business.

Chocolate Bayou was also honored for bringing Reality Fair to Alvin and Manvel High Schools last year. This unique financial literacy exercise provided students with a firsthand experience of what their parents go through every month managing the family budget. Reality Fair is less than three hours long, yet imparted a valuable snapshot view into the real world of financial reality. Participating students included seniors enrolled in economics classes.

Students met with high school counselors beforehand and received a monthly pay and a budget worksheet to instruct them on expected expenses. The students made decisions on typical monthly expenses like living arrangements, food, transportation, utilities, clothing, luxury items, pets, etc. At the end of the session they sat with a financial counselor and reviewed their financial profile – and most were surprised.

A large number of community volunteers assisted Chocolate Bayou Credit Union and the Alvin ISD to make Reality Fair possible. The event is also planned for this current school year.
