DON'T GET LURED IN BY PHISHING SCAMSTERS
Hundreds of consumers have found themselves the victims of an e-mail scam known as "phishing." It's pronounced "fishing" and that is exactly what thieves are doing: "fishing" for your personal financial information. It involves high-tech fraudsters who pretend to be a legitimate financial institution or credit card company. Hiding behind the anonymity of the Internet, the fraudsters send out "official-looking" e-mails designed to trick consumers into divulging financial and personal information such as account numbers, passwords, user names, Social Security numbers and other sensitive data. In most cases, the e-mail claims that there is an account problem or warns of a possible fraud threat. Either way, the whole idea is to convince the consumer there is an immediate need to update their financial information.
If you receive an e-mail from C-B-W Schools Federal Credit Union requesting financial information or any other personal or sensitive data:
- Treat the e-mail with suspicion
- Do not reply to the e-mail or click on any links within the e-mail message. C-B-W Schools Federal Credit Union will never ask you to provide any kind of confidential or financial details via an e-mail request.
