PHISHING SCAM TARGETING CREDIT UNION MEMBERS


PHISHING SCAM TARGETING CREDIT UNION MEMBERS

Saturday, October, 28th, 2017 in News

St Colmcille’s (Kells) Credit Union has been informed again that there’s currently a phishing scam targeting Credit Union members throughout the country.

Members who have been targeted will receive an email from what seems legitimate and will be titled something around finance or invoicing.  The email will have a word document attachment, and when clicked on, it will prompt users to download additional files.

St Colmcille’s (Kells)Credit Union strongly urges its members in receipt of such emails never to click on any link as doing so enables the download of malicious software that has the capacity to collect and compromise personal details and defraud accounts.

The Credit Union never contacts its members asking them to provide full personal details by email, online or by phone.

If you have any questions don’t forget you can always call into the office or phone us on (046) 924 0299
