NCUA Warns of Phony Fraud Alert

The NCUA is urging federally insured credit unions to be on the lookout for a bogus Letter to Credit Unions accompanied by two compact discs.

The letter, which purports to be a fraud alert, has so far been received by one federal credit union. It is numbered “09-FCU-09” and deals with phishing scams.

The agency urges people not to run the compact discs because it could corrupt security.

Credit unions receiving this package or a similar package should contact your NCUA Regional Office or the NCUA Fraud Hotline at 1-800-827-9650.
