Fradulent Email Warnings

  • CUNA/NCUA Email-E-mails are being sent across the internet in the name of CUNA and NCUA. The CUNA phishing email uses a subject line: "Get your $50.00 Reward Survey with Credit Union National Association." The message includes the America’s Credit Unions brand logo. The text of the NCUA message is addressed to "Dear National Credit Union Administration Customer," offers a survey with five easy questions and a $50 credit to the recipient’s account. Neither CUNA nor NCUA are financial institutions; they don’t have consumer accounts. The recipient message asks the recipient to click on the link. There, the recipient is asked for financial information. CUNA was able to shut one scam site down on Friday morning. However, many other sites are still active. If you receive any of these emails, do not click on the links provided and delete the emails. Beware of any email offering you a cash reward for completing a survey. These emails may be an attempt to capture your personal data for possible identity theft.
