Fraudulent NCUA Email Scam
Several members have received a phishing email that appears to be from the National Credit Union Association (NCUA). These false e-mails ask recipients to click on a link to confirm, verify, or approve financial account information. If the recipient proceeds, the link directs them to a false website to verify or re-submit confidential information such as account and credit card numbers, Social Security number, password, and personal identification numbers.
The NCUA does not ask credit unions members for personal information. Anyone who receives an supposed e-mail or phone call from NCUA that asks for account information should consider it a fraudulent attempt to obtain their personal account data for an illegal purpose and should not follow the instructions in the e-mail or phone call.
Please DO NOT respond to this email by calling or clicking any links included. DO NOT respond to requests for personal information over the phone, or via email or text message, or any other unsolicited requests for personal or account information.
Please remember that Space Coast Credit Union, the NCUA, CUNA, CUNA Mutual, or any other organization pertaining to credit unions, DOES NOT e-mail, text message, or telephone our members asking for personal information such as complete social security numbers, account numbers, dates of birth, etc. If you ever have a question concerning your account, contact SCCU directly at 800-447-7228.
