WASHINGTON (8/25/10)—NACHA, the electronic payments association, is again warning of a phishing scam perpetrated by individuals that are claiming to be representatives of NACHA. The scam mirrors earlier reports of emails that claimed that the accountholder in question made an unauthorized auto clearinghouse (ACH) transaction. NACHA reported similar emails late last month. While the email says that the transaction was “rejected” by NACHA, the organization has again stated that it “does not process nor touch the ACH transactions that flow to and from organizations and financial institutions.” “NACHA does not send communications to individuals or organizations about individual transactions that they originate or receive,” NACHA added in a Tuesday release. 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. For the full NACHA advisory, use the resource link.
