NACHA warns of phishing scam
WASHINGTON (3/15/11)--NACHA, the electronic payments association, on Monday warned of a phishing scam perpetrated by individuals who are claiming to be representatives of NACHA. The emails, which contain harmful links, have been sent to both individuals and companies and bear the name of NACHA and, at times, the names of fictitious NACHA employees and departments. NACHA in its Monday release said that the organization “does not process nor touch [auto clearinghouse (ACH) transactions] that flow to and from organizations and financial institutions. “NACHA does not send communications to persons or organizations about individual ACH transactions that they originate or receive,” the organization added. NACHA warned recipients not to click on the link included in the email, and added that similar fraudulent emails, with some changes, could be sent in the future. NACHA also recommended the use of antivirus programs. NACHA most recently warned of a similar scam on Feb. 22, and has been the victim of other phishing scams in recent years.
