E-Mail Scam Targets Online Banking Users
Recently, consumers have received fraudulent e-mails from what appears to be their financial institution's online banking partner. The e-mail states that the member's password has expired and provides a link to use to update password and confidential information.
There are certain measures you can take to avoid becoming a victim of this scam. Never click on a link that you are unfamiliar with, as it may be fraudulent. If you are receiving unsolicited e-mails, consider adding the e-mail address to your spam filter. SEFCU and our partners will not e-mail you with these types of requests.
If you ever have a question about an e-mail or phone call you receive, please contact SEFCU to determine the legitimacy of it.
