NCUA alerts CUs to phishing scam
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (2/25/08)—The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) continues efforts to inform credit unions and consumers that the agency does not ask for personal account information and that the public should view any such requests as a likely scam. In a recent fraud alert issued to all federally insured credit unions, the NCUA noted a phishing attempt seeking to obtain credit card information. The fraudulent email carries a number to call in the Albany, N.Y. area. The alert advised credit union management to inform employees of the email ploy to garner card numbers and expiration dates so they can be on the front line of detection. The fraudulent emails being sent to credit union members and the general public read: “National Credit Union Administration temporarily suspended your account due to fraud attempts”. It goes on to state “to reactivate your account call the toll free number” provided.
