Phishing Scam Alert January 2018
Please be aware that there is a phishing scam going around at the minute targeting members of Credit Unions.
Members who have been targeted will receive an email from a helpdesk address, or an address that seems like a legitimate Credit Union email address, using a Credit Union logo. The email will inform the member that their password needs to be changed due to a possible breach, and will encourage them to click on a link to change their password.
This scam is designed to collect members’ personal details with a view to gaining access to personal financial accounts. Members are advised to NOT download the file. If you do get one of these emails, delete it immediately. If you are unsure of the safety or provenance of an email, contact the Credit Union for clarification.
