Texas league warns of phishing scam
FARMERS BRANCH, Texas (10/4/10)--The Texas Credit Union League is warning credit unions about an e-mail in circulation claiming the Texas league was notified by Visa that a national retailer may have experienced a card security breach. The perpetrator is phishing for personal information to be used fraudulently, the league said. The league encourages credit unions to continue educating members about phishing and other scams. The phishing e-mail reads: “The Texas Credit Union League (TCUL), representing all of Texas credit unions, was notified by VISA that a national retailer may have experienced a security breach. As a result, some Texas credit unions VISA/Master/ATM/Debit card accounts may be affected. If you have received this notification means that your card account was identified as being at risk.” The e-mail signature uses the name of Guy M. Hood, the well-known, retired CEO of the Florida Credit Union League. He has never been affiliated with the Texas league. The league is taking steps to protect the privacy of its members and sent copies of the e-mail to the Texas attorney general’s office Internet Crime Complaint Center.
