Fraud alert issued
An e-mail phishing scam has been sent out targeting Credit Union 1 members. The scam e-mail subject line is “Credit Union 1 Important Notice!” and tells the member to visit a Web site, a copy of Credit Union 1’s home page, and then log in to online banking to update their information.
If the member does so, an online membership update application comes up. That form asks for personal information such as name, ATM and Visa check card number, expiration date, security code (CVV2) and PIN.
The scam site hosted by a company based in St. Petersburg, Russia, has been contacted. Anyone who believes they have fallen victim of this scam e-mail should call Credit Union 1 at 339-9485 or (800) 478-2222 to have their credit and debit cards and online passwords canceled.
