Email spam is a constant problem on the internet. One way that we can help protect CTC members is by making sure your password is complex enough to protect you from accounts being used to send spam.
Remember, CTC will never ask for your password over email or on the phone or in an email, and we’re not asking for that now. But, we are asking you to change your current password for accounts [emailaddress]
Go to goctc.com and click on the Change Password banner or the link at the top of the page or go to http://goctc.com/changepassword Enter your current email address and password:
If you don’t remember your password, call us at 218-454-1234 and press 1 at the prompt to retrieve it.
