Scam alert: Spoofed 800 calls
Several members have reported receiving spoofed calls that appear to come from Patelco’s 800 number. Spoofing is when a fraudster deliberately falsifies the information transmitted to your caller ID. The fraudsters are asking members for personal information such as online banking User IDs and passwords, then stealing money from their accounts.
Please remember Patelco will never call and ask for the following:
- your member number
- your full card number
- your card PIN, CVV or expiration date
- your online banking User ID
- your online banking password
If you get a call asking for any of these, it is most likely a scam. If you ever feel uneasy about a call you receive, hang up and call us at 800.358.8228.

Patelco moves headquarters to Dublin
Patelco recently moved its headquarters to Dublin, located at 3 Park Place, which the credit union purchased last year to accommodate its rapidly growing workforce while furthering its mission to improve the financial health and well-being of its members throughout northern California. Team members moved into the building in early December, after an extensive remodel.
“Our laser focus on our mission and commitment to improving our members’ financial health and well-being has resulted in us outgrowing our current facility,” said Erin Mendez, president and CEO of Patelco Credit Union.
“The larger office space is a proud reflection of not only our team’s efforts in serving our members, but the larger space will also help our team members lead balanced lives, thanks to its more convenient access to public transportation, shops, restaurants and additional outdoor space.”
Patelco purchased the building in June 2018, which features a number of attractive benefits. It is located within 1.5 miles of its previous headquarters but with closer access to public transportation, including BART, along with a greater variety of restaurants and community shopping options. 3 Park Place also features workout space, outdoor facilities and sufficient room for Patelco to continue growing.
“Patelco has proudly spent many successful years in Pleasanton, so we are pleased to stay within the heart of the Tri-Valley area,” said Mendez.
