The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) has been receiving reports on a phishing scam that’s trying to appear as coming from the NCUA.
Emails are being sent to consumers from the “National Credit Union,” and the website uses a similar look and logo as the NCUA website. The fraudulent National Credit Union appears to originate in Australia.
The email offers financial services and asks for a Social Security number, account number, login information, or sometimes a money transfer.
Please note the NCUA does not conduct business or transactions in this manner. Do not submit your personal information to a website if you receive such an email.
If you’ve received this scam email, contact the NCUA fraud hotline at 1-800-827-9650, or visit the Internet Crime Complaint Center.
