JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Attorney General Chris Koster is advising consumers "to be alert" after a glitch made information available online about members of the Missouri Credit Union.
The attorney general's office says the member information was accessible on the credit union's website for only a short period this summer. But it says consumers should diligently monitor their accounts for any unusual activity.
Koster says criminals can use the information from consumers to commit financial identity theft.
The Credit Union has notified its roughly 39,000 members about the computer glitch, as well as former members whose personal information was available online.
