A Current Scam: What to Look Out For
There have been reports of individuals receiving phishing emails from scammers who are posing as the individual’s credit union or bank.
These fraudulent emails notify recipients of a security update to protect their personal accounts. The emails also encourage recipients to open a link, attachment, or calendar invitation for more directions.
However, the link or attachments lead recipients to a malicious website that resembles their credit union or bank’s website. That website is designed to trick individuals into entering their online banking credentials, card numbers, and account numbers for the scammers to then steal.
Remember, you should never click on any links or open any attachments from an unexpected email. If you receive a suspicious email similar to what’s described above, delete the email and call us immediately at 800.845.5025.
