Jeffco CU restores online banking site
LAKEWOOD, Colo. (1/4/08)--Jeffco CU has restored its online banking site after shutting it down last week to protect members from a phishing scam. No member data were compromised, according to Paula Felten, Jeffco vice president of marketing. Scammers sent e-mails to Jeffco members telling them that their accounts had been suspended. The members were told to use a link, which led them to a website where they could enter their personal account information. The fake site looked similar to Jeffco CU’s main site (News Now Jan. 2). The credit union shut down its online banking site because it “wasn’t sure what members were giving out” to the scammers, Felten said. Jeffco CU has $145 million in assets.
